Lip eczema treatable: After cold sores, persistent chapped lips can be lip eczema, which can be treated like skin eczema, using hydrocortisone cream a few days, 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 her habit). Once cracked, lips can get irritated by foods and juices.
