One of the unfortunate side-effects of some chemotherapy is mouth ulcers and sore lips. Also the wintry weather or a cold or flu can trigger mouth ulcers if your lips become too dry and accidentally biting them. It helps to keep the affected area clean and to apply a soothing lip balm to help keep your lips moist and feeling good.
Lip balms are ideal to help prevent your lips from drying out and cracking. We add a Burt’s Bees Beeswax lip balm to our kit for cancer case. 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 added peppermint oil for a refreshing tingle.
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.
