A 26-year-old male asked:
I have dark dry patches on my upper lip. They are not sore, neither do they itch. They are just dry and if I drink a soda or something, they burn. ?

May be lip eczema: Persistent dry lips may be lip eczema, which can be treated like skin eczema, using hydrocortisone cream plus Vaseline or Aquaphor to retain moisture. Sometimes, lipsticks or lip sunscreen chemicals are causing an allergic reaction on the lips. Other times, a person is a primary lip-licker (it's his habit). If dry lips crack, they can get irritated by foods or juices. A doctor can sort things out.
