Not plain Vaseline: Plain vaseline is inert with respect to the immune system so will not cause any skin reaction. If it was flavored or had other additives, they rarely can cause a reaction. Most likely the swollen lips are unrelated to the vaseline. ...Read more

Several options: Sorry to hear about the symptoms. Vaseline is rarely a great option for lip therapy. On the other hand, non-petroleum based moisturizers can help, in addition to antihistamines that may reduce the soreness/swelling.

Vaseline is ok: Persistent dry or chapped lips is lip eczema, which can be treated like skin eczema, using Hydrocortisone cream plus vaseline or aquaphor to retain moisture. Sometimes, lip sunscreen chemicals can cause an allergic reaction on the lips. Other times, a person is a primary lip-licker (it's his habit). Once cracked, lips get irritated by routine foods, juices, & saliva. A doctor can sort things out. ...Read more
