Bottom lip had skin cancer, treated w/aldara over 1 yr ago. Cancer gone. Lip still huge & chapped. Nothing helps it. Tried everything w/dermatologist.

In brief: See Surg/Derm

This may very well be side effects of aldara (imiquimod).
You should go see your dermatologist to find out. More importantly, you need to be sure that you don't have an underlying skin cancer. And if there is no recurrence, you can talk to a plastic surgeon or in some cases oral surgeons or ear/nose doctors about surgical options such as cheiloplasty. Where some or all of the damaged mucosa could be shaved.
