Customer Question

Hi, I have dry outer lips and my facial skin is red. What would be the treatment?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: My lips also feel chapped and about 50 % of my face has a red rash that has a slight warm sensation. I do not have a fever or feel ill. I am in Arizona and had this situation last spring.
