If the cracking is on the outside at the corners of the lips, one of the gals here mentioned using Vagisil successfully. Um… I haven’t tried it myself, but hey…

Good luck-

I used John Masters Organics chap stick called 'lip calm'. It really worked wonders.

Vaseline is actually not good as it is derived from petroleum. No wonder it made it worse.

For lips I found good old-fashioned bag balm to work wonders (it has lanolin in it) and for the nighttime "leather tongue", mouth moisturizing gel by Oragel worked good.~MM

  I feel your pain. With buzz words like Vasaline, Vagisil, and good old-fashioned bag balm,
It sure makes it Hard not to respond.
