Conditions - Cracked Lips

Chapped lips or cracked lips may be caused by the evaporation of moisture. Often the lips become dry because the layer of oil that is naturally produced by the body to coat the lips is removed or is lacking.

Severely dried lips are caused by chronic anhydrotic condition on lips characterised by the following:

  • Dry flaky skin on the lip and deep cracks
  • Soreness and discomfort
  • Red marks along the cracks as a sign of inflammation
