Which do doctors prefer for healing? Vaseline or aquaphor

Inflammation (red, hot, swollen, tender) is important to healing so anti-inflammatories (motrin, advil) are bad.

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).
