In brief: Dry lips: emollients

Thank you for your question.
Dry lips could possibly be the result of weather changes, your medications and/or another condition. Treatment with effective emollients (i.e. petrolatum, lip balm, etc.) is a good first start, however if it persists, having a thorough examination and evaluation performed by a qualified medical practitioner would be helpful in diagnoses and treatment.
