Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi there and thanks for your question...
Dry/sticky lips can have several causes....certain medications, diabetes, dehydration, to name a few....knowing what is the cause can sometimes be the answer. In the meantime, you need to make sure you are drinking atleast 8-8oz's of water daily -more if you can do it. Keeping yourself hydrated on the inside will help a lot. If you get the diagnosis of Sjorgren's, this will give you some definitive reasons. In the meantime, can get some glycerin swabs to use on your lips, use a humidifier in your house and bedroom and make sure you maintain good oral hygiene.
If you do get diagnosed with Sjorgren's, you can click this website for more info...
Hope this helps!
You can get glycerin swabs at most Pharmacies...or home health store...or you can order online...
Another, question, do you take antihistimines like Claritin, Zyrtec, Allegra D, Xyzal, or Clarinex?? Any medication that is used for sinuses can cause dry mouth or sticky lips.
