Red Mouth Corners

I'm using Aquaphor on my lips and the corners, but the corners are red. Not flaky or painful or bleeding or cracking, just red.

They feel dry if I don't apply Aquaphor after a meal or after talking a lot, or after drinking/snacking.

Is there anything I can do to make them stop being so red? It kinda makes me look like I have a bloody mustache.

Try Dr. Dans CortiBalm. You can put it on and then put aquaphor on top of it. Works great for me. Especially for cracked lips -- heals them fast.

Yeah but mine aren't cracking. Do you guys think that applying Aquaphor (or any other balm/lotion/etc.) is actually keeping the corners red? I don't want to just stop applying and totally crack up (not the funny way).

I looked around some local pharms to no avail, ordered some Dr. Dan's online. I'm eagerly awaiting it's arrival. :)

My whole mouth goes reddish, as if I have lip color on. Since I'm a girl, I don't mind, but Aquaphor is enough to take care of it. My lips aren't flaking, either, though they peel easily if I bite them (nervous habit). I hope the Dr. Dan's balm works for you!

Thanks, lol I also get the whole 'nervous -> biting -> peeling -> more nervous' habit.

Cute pic too :)
