There are a number of natural home remedies to heal split lips which are both economical and simple to use. First of all, lets examine why this condition occurs and, more importantly, what you can do to prevent this reoccurring.
Many people believe that cracks and splits around the mouth area are caused by cold or hot weather or as a side effect of having a virus, such as that related to the common cold or flu. Now whilst all these conditions can be responsible for worsening the condition, they are never the root cause.
There are a couple of reasons why you might have this condition. Firstly, one common cause is repeated wetting or dampening of the lips and mouth edges due to drooling or dribbling. This could be happening because of poorly fitting false teeth, or because of a finger sucking or nail biting habit. Some people also have a tendency to bite pens or pencils-another common cause. What happens is that the damp area can harbour bacteria which takes hold and often becomes fungal. When this happens, healing can be very difficult and the only way is to prevent moisture and air reaching the skin as neither bacteria nor fungal infection can survive without either of these. Another common reason is a deficiency of Vitamin B or iron.
The condition is known as angular cheilitis.
Natural home remedies to heal split lips can be as simple as removing the source of the dampening of the skin. For example, if dentures are to blame, they may need adjusting or repairing. If finger biting or pen sucking is to blame, try painting some bitter anti-nail biting liquid on the object until the person deterred from putting the object in their mouths.
Simple substances can also be used. One good natural home remedy for split lips is honey. Just place a thin coat on the affected area. Similarly, petroleum jelly can help to give some pain relief by protecting the area from the elements temporarily.
Other natural home remedies to heal split lips include eating foods which are rich in Vitamin B, such as liver, beef, tuna, oats, bananas and avocados and those rich in iron, such as baked beans, red meats, wholemeal bread, fortified cereals and apricots.
