This hot weather.can cause your lips to be dry, dehydrated and chapped. The development of sore lips from treatment causes further discomfort for patients. Chemotherapy can cause cracked lips through dryness, cracking, soreness, bleeding, infections that are fungal in origin, and cold sores from herpes simplex. When you open your mouth wide you develop badly, cracked lips especially on the sides and they could bleed and be extremely painful  You can also suffer from sore lips and nose when using an oxygen mask also.

We’ve added Burt’s Bees Beeswax lip balm to Kit to help ensure that your lips are nourished. This natural lip balm is loaded with coconut and sunflower oils, rich in vitamins and essential fatty acids, to nourish, condition and soften lips. Beeswax seals in hydration. They’ve added peppermint oil for a refreshing tingle.

Keeping hydrated is so important too so drink lots of water. This can also help in preventing chapped and dry lips. Another tip is to keep a water bottle spray handy or suck ice to keep your mouth moistened.

Consult your medical team if your lip problems continue.
