    I need Chapped Lips Remedies!

    Okay, I went to the dentist a week and a half ago and the sides of my lips split. Well, since then, they won't heal! I've tried Carmex, Blistex, Vitamin E, and some avon stuff. The worse part is, when my lips get chapped, I can't help but pick at them, and that only makes it worse.

    So, help!!!! Do you have any ideas for me! I am willing to try anything. With it getting colder and winter on it's way, I've got to get my lips healed fast.

    Try Smith's Rosebud Salve.

    It works so well, I love this stuff. And it's pretty inexpensive.

    I've used either 'complete moisture' from Blistex or Carmex, but with Bath & Body works lip gloss over it and it works wonders for me that way.
    I hate when you go to the dentist and you end up with chapped lips that you peel out of habit. I'll look through my cabinents and see if there is anything else I can think of that i've used.

    I'd go into Bath & Body works, they might be able to help, the've got a good selection of lip glosses and chapsticks.

    Don't you hate it when you go to the dentist then leave with more mouth problems than when you went in? This spring when I went in for a regular cleaning & got my bridge replaced they poked and proded around in my mouth so much I got a ton of canker sores that took almost a month for them to all heal.

    Well I was going to suggest Carmex, that always works for me in this awful windy weather. But I know I PILE it on, just right on the sores.

    Oh and don't pick

    Don't lick it either.

    I like Neosporin LP, I think it's called.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    And it smells good, too! I also use it on my cuticles.
    A signature should go here.

    Re: I need Chapped Lips Remedies!

    The best cure allI can think of is good old fashion vaseline...

    load it on, it tastes nasty so you won't pick....

    rub it in, then apply again, yeah it's not the prettiest, but it'll work fast!

    at night, put a bit more on the most chapped spots....

    I have a variety of products that I use, but when it's really bad, Vaseline works the best for me.

    I was going to suggest the same, it's always worked well for me.
    What an idiot....

    Yeah, I do that Twitter thing.

    I don't know how far south this stuff is exported, but try to find "Burt's Bees" at a health food shop. It's beeswax and Royal Jelly, organic nad it works like a charm!

    I had the same problem a couple of weeks ago and unfortunately only time healed the cracked lips. Though the neosporin suggested above really helps with the pain.

    With chapped lips, I read an article once that said if you have them it probably means you need to drink more water. Simple, but it works.

    I just got that today, after seeing you gals rave about it. Wow, what a difference. I had been loading on my mocha cino avon stuff, but it was sticky on my lips and I had that and 3 other lip glosses in my purse, so I knew I had to do something about that.

    Re: I need Chapped Lips Remedies!

    Well, here's the update, I've been putting thick lotion on my mouth at night - it looks pretty scary. But, it keeps my lips from drying out at night. Then, during the day, I've just been slathering on anything I can find. Anything to keep me from picking at my lips!

    So, far, the pain is gone, a little chappy still, but getting so much better! Thanks for all the tips. I wish I had a Sephora nearby - that stuff sounds great!
