Hello
thanks for using Health Care magic .

I would be pleased to answer your question

The reasons for such dryness and cracks could be due to Vitamin B 12 deficiency , Candidal infection( fungal infection ) , Atopic dermatitis .

You will need to take Vitamin B 12 daily , you can also consider Vitamin B 12 injections once a week , You can apply Neutrogena intensive lip balm on the lips daily and little bit a vitamin C based serum on the corners of the mouth daily.

you can visit the Dermatologist to give you an exact diagnosis .

Thanks and Take Care
