Cracks on corner of lips

Related Acne Archive Posts & Questions

Well I think my lips managed to dry out badly during a holiday on the beach (roaccutane, salt, sun, water etc).

So I now have cracks in the corners of my mouth (i.e. slits or cuts on my lips).

I’ve been putting sorbolene cream on them and also opening a vitamin E capsule with a pin and putting that on my lips.

It’s kind of worked, though one side still looks really bad and I think another cut has formed. It’s been 3 weeks now 🙁

Any ideas? … would it just be from the dryness of the roaccutane or some kind of infection?

    yeh, my lips did that but doesnt sound as bad. petroleum jelly sorts out my lips every time. you have to apply it regularly but it is very good
