Re: SEVERELY chapped lips. What to do?
Well the lanolin seems to be doing the trick!
The swelling is finally down (it was so bad that it was hard to understand him when he spoke and his bottom lip was LITERALLY 2 to 3 times larger than normal from the swelling due to constant picking and the cracking).
We put lanolin on his lips several times yesterday afternoon and evening, and then again before bed. I went into his room in the middle of the night and put more lanolin on his lips. Then again several times today.
There are only a few scabs left, they aren't bleeding, the swelling is gone.
So... looks like the lanolin is taking care of it. I've also been putting the lanolin on my lips and it's working great!
