I am wondering if anyone else has experienced this and how they resolved it. My now nine year old son constantly has dry skin like a chapped lip above and/or below his mouth. He licks it constantly which worsens it. He says it doesn't hurt but it looks really red and is chapped. I have him put lip balm on it mostly because I don't know what else to put on it. I try to have him do it as soon as I see it starting to appear but that doesn't always matter. He pretty has this all year except summertime. I don't want to put calendula cream on it because he licks it. I have tried coconut oil, but he licks that off and it didn't seem to do anything. He does occasionally get other dry patches elsewhere on his body. But it is infrequent. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as to what the cause may be and how to eliminate it.
