I have persistent white stuff in the corners of my mouth. My lips dry very quickly; however I'm not dehydrated as my urine tells me. Its been this way for about a month. I just want to get the white stuff gone. Help please?

Nothing to worry.

Detailed Answer:
Dear sir ,

Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX

Well looking into your problem I see that you got white chipping of skin in corners of mouth with dryness. This is a common complaint specially when season changes.

I advise you to apply vaseline cream on your lips . Take a B complex supplement . Gently exfoliate your lips while having bath.

Take care.

Dr. Shruti
