Check with MD: How long have you had dry lips for and for how long have you been using petroleum jelly? There are many causes of dry lips including but not limited to: dry or cold weather, sun damage, wind exposure, dehydration, spicy foods, allergies, smoking, fungal infections, vitamin deficiencies, side effects of medications and some skin disorders, and some medical conditions. Check with dermatologist.
