Hi XXXXXX,
Thanks for posting your query.
Because of dehydration, lips generally gets dried and as a natural phenomenon we try to keep it wet with saliva. Acid in saliva causes chelitis and recurrent dried lips with peeling of skin.
You should apply Triamcinolone (Kenacort) oral paste for getting relief.
This is wonderful drug for this problem.
Put your query if you have (and photo if possible).
Best Regards,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava

Hi,
OK, you can get normal skin over lips by applying Vaseline and moisturizing substance such as glycerin but it will take time for growth of skin. Skin growth on lips is ver rapid.
I think this will solve your query.
Thanks,
