Customer Question

My son has an extremely bad windburned mouth...there is a huge, red, ring right around his mouth and he is crying and very upset. He keeps licking it and it is making it worst. Do you have any suggestions as to what I can put on it to help him cope? I have tried Ozonol, polysporin kids, Vaseline, blistex and everything hurts as his mouth is so sore. Help!
