This stuff is amazing and combined with aquaphor, help my lips go from peeling, chapped and inflamed to pretty decently chapped lips.

My question is because cortibalm does have a steroid in it, is it safe to apply every 30 minutes/1 hour? How much did/do people usually apply it?

thanks

Mild cortisone, 1% is usually prescribed for very mild eczema. Perhaps try to use it a little less than every 30 minutes, but i'd say the only problem you'll run into is loss of effectiveness. :)

If I remember correctly, it said four times maximum per day on the box containing the CortiBalm chapstick. Also, on Dr. Dan's website, it says:

"If you are going to use this product for severe chapped lips, or any other lip irritation other than from Accutane, my advice is to use it for several weeks, and if no improvement is noted please see your physician."

I use it two times per day when my lips are somewhat chapped: Before I go to bed and after I shower in the morning. I use Blistex during the day.
