Bariatric surgery is usually followed by increased incidence of vitamin and minerals deficiency.You have specified that you take vitamin tablets,but it important that the tablet contains all the vitamins and minerals mainly containing iron,folic acid,Zn and all the vitamins.Try using Aquaphor Lip repair cream and continue taking multivitamin and mineral tablets regularly.I hope this helps.
