I have sore, red skin above and below my lips, giving a very attractive Extended Lip Look. There seems to be a thing known as 'Liplicker's Dermatitis' which, given I know I do this ( and have Lip salves in every pocket/bag/desk and shelf) is probably it.
Anyone got any ideas how to get rid of it? Concealer goes cakey and I'd like to cure rather than conceal. Currently resorting to good ol' Sudocrem at night, looking like a reverse clown, but as I look like a proper clown by day, I'd be grateful for anyone else's 'cures'.
I had a bit of this a few months ago to the point where I could hardly talk as the sides of my mouth would crack! Turned out I was having a reaction to the (cheap) toothpaste I'd switched us to, and once we'd switched back it cleared up straight away.
