I had severely burning, flaking, tender,itchy & sore lips. Even the skin around my lips was painful, dry,itchy, stinging and flaky. I tried everything (Chapstick $1 to Clinique $24) until I read the remedies on here. I tried two things which successfully worked for me. I can add that they are also pretty inexpensive (Walmart). One is the nipple cream which provided immediate relief. Lansinoh was suggested but it was sold out and I ended up buying Medela-it still worked. I also tried Aquaphor healing ointment (not the lip balm-it burned) which also worked as far as keeping the lip area moisturized but it didn't seem to feel quite as soothing as the nipple butter with its immediate relief of the burning and itching. Whew-I feel better-no more pain. Who knew?
