Why are my lips so chapped? The corners are cracked and are starting to get numb.

This winter I got chapped lips and started using Burts Beeswax daily. Went well all winter then last week I woke up and my lips we're so chapped, I yawned and the corners of my mouth cracked. 3 cuts on both sides for a total of 6 cracks.. ouch! Also the areas around the corner are numb. There is a burning pain all day and the edges of my mouth are itchy. This has been going for 4 days now. I've used vaseline and changed to medicated blistex but no relief. Any help would be great.
