In brief: 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.
Other possible causes of chapped lips include high fevers as well as environmental conditions, such as cold weat.
