Hello,
Thanks for the query.
Please dont use Xerina on lips.
It is a foot cream.
It contains salicylic acid and lactic acid.

You did an excellent thing by consulting before using it.
It would have caused severe reaction in your lips.

You can use plain petroleum jelly, that is the best treatment for dry lips.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.

Wishing you good health.
Thank you
