Re: Chapped lips? (warning, graphic pics)

Interesting. We do use a humidifier at night because Maddie has a cough. He also has a nervous habit of picking at his lips. If there's a piece of skin sticking out, he'll pick at it until it bleeds. We stop him anytime we see him doing it and tell him over and over that doing that will make it worse. But he's 2.5. He doesn't understand, apparently.

I called the doc and they can see him in 3 hours, so hopefully they can give us something stronger than vaseline, and hopefully, there's no infection.

He breathes through his nose in his sleep (which is why they were sealed shut this morning as the blood dried). He can't even eat without crying in pain. It's breaking my heart.
