One of the unfortunate side-effects of some chemotherapy is dry and sore lips. Check your lips daily looking for cracks or sore spots that could be cold sores or ulcers. They can just appear suddenly especially after a night’s sleep. Sometimes when you open your mouth wide you can 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.

We have your lips covered with a Burt’s Bees lip balm included in our Kit for Cancer case. Infused with power packed Beeswax to condition skin and antioxidant Vitamin E to richly moisturise and soften lips, this lip balm nourishes dry lips while keeping them revitalised and hydrated. It is a 100% natural beauty product free of parabens, phthalates, petrolatum and SLS. They add peppermint oil for a refreshing tingle.

Remember sharing lip balms is a definite NO NO! Keep your Burt’s Bees lip balm just for you. 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.
