A 43-year-old female asked:
When my menstraul period starts the corners of my mouth splits/crack and on my top lip in the same area gets a dry patch of peeling skin no blisters?

Cracks: May be what's called angular chelitis (google it). your hormonal swings may facilitate the problem. Try taking once daily B-complex vitamins for two months and see if that helps. If not, talk to your Gynecologist about hormone levels.
