dermdoc19 :

Lip lickers dermatitis can be treated by applying Miconazole twice daily, followed by applying Des-Owen Lotion or Maximum Strength Cortaid ointment a few hours later. Once the inflammation has disbanded, cover the area with Aquaphor.

dermdoc19 :

Happy to field any questions.

Did you try the ointment version? Des-Own Lotion is prescription, although it is very safe, even in children.

Also, the ointment version is a bit stronger and more occlusive
