Cheilitis

Commonly known as chapped lips, cheilitis is the inflammation of the skin on the lips and at the corners of the mouth. Causing redness and irritation, cheilitis can occur after overexposure to the sun or other weather conditions, constant lip-licking or eczema. Most instances can be self-treated at home using lip balm during the day and at night to prevent further skin irritation. Some more serious conditions will need medical treatment in the form of anti-fungal or topical steroid creams.
