A year I have been experiencing dry, sticky gluey lips.

Customer Question

For over a year I have been experiencing dry, sticky gluey lips. Fortunately for me they are not chapped. It is annoying feeling. I have tried so many things and nothing seems to help. Can you help me.

Hi and sorry for the delay.
A photo would help greatly here
To me, dry and gluey are not exactly the same thing so could you clear that part up for me?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I know that they are different but that is the way the lips feel. Sometimes the lips fee as if they are sticking together
