In brief: Chelitis

Many conditions and factors can precipitate transient or chronic cheilitis, including overexposure to the sun, nutritional deficiencies, allergies, medications, dehydration, diet and certain systemic diseases.
Transient cheilitis typically requires no medical intervention. Treatment for chronic cheilitis depends on the underlying cause.
