Brief Answer:
Upload a clear photograph of the cracked lips.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Welcome to Ask A Doctor Service.

If you do not have any other symptom like fever, then it is most likely just a cracked lip due to dehydration of heat.

Continue applying a good lip balm like Nivea.

Drink plenty of water.

Please upload a clear photograph of the lesion so that I can confirm if there is any infection in the lesion.

Wishing you speedy recovery.

Best regards

Cracked lips, no signs of infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hello again,

Thank you for the image, I have seen it carefully and it looks like just cracked lips due to dehydration.

There are no signs of any infection.

Continue applying the lip balm.

Drink plenty of water.

And take Multivitamin capsules for 10 days.

It will heal in about 5 days. Do not worry.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes
