thanks for your query, i have gone through your query. the crack in the lip could be because of the anemia or nutritional deficiency. it can also occur because orf the fungal infection. consult your oral physician to rule out these conditions. apply lip balm, you can also use topical anesthetic and analgesics. consume lot of water and green leafy vegetables. i hope my answer will help you. take care.
