Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Chapped lip are not likely to be a part of cold sores as our lips are not lined by mucosa. It is best to use a lip guard twice daily to get rid of your chapped lips.Along with increasing age as our body fat stores decrease , there is more effect of external factors on our skin.
