I have had so many problems with my lips becoming dry and chapped over the past year or so. Some of my issues are due to allergies, followed by allergy induced asthma, and then my lymph node issue that exacerbated the problem. Most recently, I had a very bad flare up 2 weeks ago, and while I was sick, I struggled to stay hydrated, which in turn dried my lips out. I was unable to go to the store, so I had to make do with an item I had on hand. It wasn’t sufficient, so once I was able to drive, I went to the pharmacy, only to find they were out of stock on the Carmex Lip Conditioner that I love and know I can rely on. I settled for a competitor product, only to go home and discover I was allergic and my lips swelled up like you wouldn’t believe! I rushed to another pharmacy where the pharmacist gasped at the sight, and then found me some regular Carmex to get me through the ordeal. Now that my healing balm has gotten me through the worst of it all, I am diligently applying my lip conditioner (and drinking tons of water) to make sure I and my lips stay hydrated and moist. With winter officially arriving in a few weeks, I’d like to encourage all of you to keep some of this on hand to ward off dry lips during the dry months and cold/flu season!
