Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.

Dry lips are a common thing and may not be related to any particular disease.
Most often they are there due to weather changes.

In some cases medication like lipid lowering agents can also cause dry lips.

Just apply white petroleum jelly ( vaseline).
This should give you some relief.

Please upload a photograph of the affected area.
