Dry lips can be a problem for cancer patients during treatment causing further discomfort for patients. As part of your oral care it is important to moisturise your lips.

Chemotherapy can cause cracked lips through dryness, cracking, soreness, bleeding, infections that are fungal in origin, and cold sores from herpes simplex. This can be extremely painful especially when you open your mouth wide you develop badly, cracked lips especially on the sides and they could bleed. You can also suffer from sore lips and nose when using an oxygen mask also.
