Thank you for your question. If you are having chronic and persistent dryness and chapping of the lips it might be sign of actinic chelitis. Your doctor may want you to have biopsy done before treatment. I recommend having a consultation with an expert for an evaluation and to determine the best treatment plan for you. Best of Luck!
