Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,
Dry lips may not be the cause of s.Anginosus infection ,but if you have any such infection then start of with any antiboitic like roxithromycin or azithromycin .Along with this you should also use any good lip balm which has a moisturizing effect.
take care,

Dermatologist Dr. Gaurang Krishna's  Response
how did you find that you are having s.anginosus. was a culture done from your lip swab?
bacterial infection is not a cause of of dry and chapped lips usually. this culture finding may have been due to contamination. I suggest using vaseline 3-4 times daily and elocon cream once at night. tell me the results after 2 weeks of therapy.
