Dry itchy and flaky skin around the lips

I'm not sure what started my skin problem. I've never been allergic to anything. The doctor said it could be Exema, but no one in my family has ever had an exema problem. I'm very frustrated, and I just want it to go away! Its very dry, itchy and flaky around the top and bottom lip area. I dont have it anywhere else on my body, just on my lips. The doctor prescribed Tetracycline. I have to take it for 2 weeks.

Personally I would be wary about taking the antibiotics unless you have a bacterial infection there.

It may be that you have a deficiency in any number of the B vitamins , which shows up as dry, flaky skin. Or Vitamin A. Get yourself a really good MultiVitamin/Mineral (Solgar is good) for starters and start taking OMEGA 3 Essential Fatty Acids like a Flaxseed Oil or Fish Oil and also consider Evening Primrose Oil.

The skin expresses internal imbalances so first address problem through diet. The right homeopathic remedy will require more detailed info about you , but cell salts might not be a bad place to start - try Silica Tissue Salt 6x .

How long have you had this and when did it start? Where you using any new creams on your face in particular? Have you been eating anything unusual?
