My lips are feeling like leather. What could be the problem?

Customer Question

My lips are extremely dry and leathery feeling. I have tried several different lip balms such as Carmex, Neosporin lip balm, etc. but nothing is working. They peel and almost feel swollen. They also have a slick feeling to them at times and this extends to my mouth and tongue sometimes.
