What can cause extremely dry & chapped lips? I drink plenty of water & try different chapsticks. However, they still get very chapped. I work inside.

Too much?: The the most common mistake we make is keeping the lips wet with saliva; this makes dryness even worse. You have probably developed dryness related to the weather or office environment. After it starts we "check" (lick) all the time not realizing that we are making the problem worse. Use your favorite chapstick and try your best to not "check". Hope this helps!

Chapped, dry lips: Do u take any medications or supplements? Any vitamin a derivative moisturizers? Otc antihistamines? Many meds (rx & otc) can cause dry lips/skin. Flavored lip balms tend to encourage licking lips more, resulting in chapping. Per mayo clinic derm dr. Gibson, use oil-based lubricating cream/lip balm with petrolatum/beeswax. Before going out in cold, dry weather, apply lip balm w/sunscreen.
