Chapping, infection: In the winter excessive lip licking or moisture causes chapping in cold dry air. The vermillion border between the lips and the face is commonly where these problems are noticed. Many infections or immune disorders may cause fissuring of the lips, and if not better after lip balm, or if feverish should contact your doctor. May be scarlet fever, herpes or other infection.
