Suggest treatment for chronic cheilitis

I recently have chronic chapped lips. This is something new. I ve also recently started drinking the juice of one lemon a day (usually diluted, but sometimes straight) as it helps me with so many things. Can this be a link to my very sore, chapped lips?

Dermatologist 's  Response
Hello, let me begin by telling you that no, lemon juice isnot related to chapping of the lips..it is a rich source of Vitamin C which is good for the skin.
Chapping of the lips can have a range of causes viz. B-complex vitamin deficiency, dry weather, excessive lip licking etc
I would adv you to take Cap Becosule 1 daily, along with application of a good lip balm like Chaptex on your lips after cleaning with plain water three times per day.
Thanks
Take care
