Re: SEVERELY chapped lips. What to do?

When they get bad have him put diaper rash cream on his lips. It needs to contain zinc.
His lips will be white, but it will soak in. When it does have him put more on.

My 8 yr old get a bleeding crack in the middle of his bottom lip every winter that just does not heal and then when it does it starts all over again. I took him to the ped last winter and she said to use the diaper cream.
It does work, and because his lips are white, when it soaks in it reminds you to reapply.
I have him use it once he gets home from school and over night, and all weekend. He likes the butt paste the best.
