Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Dry lips tend to be more prone to itching and peeling easily. This condition is generally not dangerous. However, improper handling can make this complaint even more widespread, even triggering wounds, secondary infection, to hypopigmented lesions (bogo back), or vice versa (hyperpigmentation) which are difficult to remove.
Need to clarify first, how long have you felt these complaints? Are there certain diseases that you experience other than complaints on the lips?
Dry lips can indicate dehydration (lack of fluids). This condition is prone to occur in people who do not drink enough, or are suffering from illness characterized by vomiting, diarrhea, and profuse sweating. High mobility without being balanced with adequate fluid intake can also trigger symptoms of dehydration.
In addition, it could also be complaints like what you have experienced due to other factors, for example:
Accustomed to breathing through the mouth Environmental conditions that are windy, dry, or too cold Excessive sun exposure Habits of forceful biting, licking, or exfoliating Lack of nutrition, especially vitamin C and other vitamins and minerals Cheilitis (inflammation of the lips that causes dry and chapped lips -divided, can be related to the use of cosmetics, toothpaste, or other products that are irritating) Genetic smoking (hereditary), and so on. Your habit of exfoliating dry lips can trigger chronic inflammation around the lips which ultimately leads to hypopigmentation lesions. This condition can be much more difficult to treat than the initial illness (dry lips). Therefore, you should stop these bad habits as early as possible. It could also, whitish patches around your lips appear due to tinea versicolor (tinea versicolor), pityriasis alba, vitiligo (damage to cells that produce skin pigment), and so on.
Check your complaint directly to the doctor so that it can be further evaluated as to what is the best management to deal with it. If deemed necessary, the doctor may also refer you to a dermatologist for further treatment.
In the meantime, in addition to breaking the habit of exfoliating your lips, do the following:
Drink more 2 to 3 liters per day Use lip balm to keep your lips moist. Don't lick or bite your lips too often. Wear cosmetics around your lips only when necessary, don't overdo it. Eat and drink that is healthy and nutritious, especially rich in vitamins C Avoid smoking Avoid living in cold, windy environments, or exposed to direct sunlight. You can also use an air humidifier so that environmental humidity is well preserved. There is no special way that can be done to restore the whitish skin color of the lips to normal. However, by stopping the bad habits above, this complaint should not get worse, and the skin color will gradually return to its original state along with the skin regeneration process. It is not recommended for you to use any ointment or cream on the problematic lips if it is not recommended directly by your doctor.
Hope it helps ..
