Two weeks ago, things got a bit
worse when I noticed painful tenderness in corners of the upper lip
. I had one doctor tell me I could have cheilitis, but the mild steroid that was prescribed did nothing. I tried the at-home cure, washing the lips with antibacterial soap and the slathering vaseline, but it just seems to make it dry without healing. I take tons of vitamins— iron, b complex, extra b12, lysine, A, D, E, flaxseed oil...but nothing has seemed to make a difference.
