Re: SEVERELY chapped lips. What to do?

I will also put in a plug for Vaseline. I have always had dry lips and used a crapton of Blistex & Carmex, but then I developed an allergy to lots of ingredients that caused my lips to break out (even if I put the offender on another part of my body, my lips broke out.) Beeswax was one of my allergens so that's when I switched to plain Vaseline. My boys get very dry, cracked, bleeding lips in the winter and Vaseline helps immediately.

I have also used lanolin in the past and it works well, but I didn't like the sticky factor.
