Brief Answer:
Apply aloe vera lip balm or glycerine.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. It is nothing unusual for the lips of a child to become dry, crack and even ooze blood in a weather like this. I do not think it to be due to anything else. You need to apply some moisturizer like aloe vera gel or glycerine on the lips of the baby. Vaseline can be used but aloe vera is much better since the latter hydrates the skin.

Let me know if I could help further.
