Suggest remedy for lip allergy after using cherry carmex

Hi, I recently purchased cherry carmex and I broke out.. I guess I had a lip allergy to it that I didn t know about. I had used it three times and every time I used it my lips got very chapped, flaky, and they now have scabs from the reaction. I was wondering do anyone know what I can take to heal my lips?

Hi. Stop using this cherry carmex and apply a good moisturizer like blistex 3-4 times a day. Also, apply a topical antibiotic like mupirocin twice daily. It sounds bit messy, but you can apply honey at night for faster relief. Hope it answers your queries.
