Chelitis: Lip-licking cheilitis is best treated with avoidance of the licking behavior. Drug-induced cheilitis is treated with avoidance of the offending drug, but if this is not possible, frequent application of aquaphor ointment, which is over the counter, may help ease lip pain and irritation.

My son 1& half years took hot porridge & got some wounds on the lips. Which medication should I get him because am worried he may be with wounds inside?

Consider function: If he is able to drink fluids without difficulty the mouth injury is likely minimal. If troubled, have him checked. There is no specific meds to use. The saliva has some enzymes that suppress germs so most of these exposures self heal.Ibuprofen as a general pain measure, chilled applesauce or Popsicle pieces are sometimes helpful. Avoid acidic juices like orange/grapefruit. ...Read more

Noticed some genital warts near anus opening. Also cold sore on lip. Any OTC medication I can apply?

HSV no, warts maybe: No OTC medications will have any significant benefit against an oral herpes outbreak (cold sore). For warts, there are OTC treatments, such as "Compound W" in the US; I have no idea about what is availalbe in Kenya. But you shouldn't self treat anal warts without professional care. Your diagnosis may be wrong; and in the anal area, significant irritation and ulceration can result. ...Read more

Hydration: Air conditioning drys out the air a lot. As a result, staying hydrated is one of the best things she can do to help with not only her lips but with dry skin in general. Non-petroleum-based lip balms can also help but are no substitute for drinking lots of water. ...Read more
