I use aquaphorr lip repair by eucerin and that has been working. You have to keep putting it on all day. I also use eucerin 3 day night repair to put at night time.

Hello !
Yes I have this too. I have ACC, and had all my teeth extracted before neck resection. I use lip balm, but most important is staying hydrated. I carry balm and water everywhere I go. Does he have issues with dry mouth ? Can get over counter rinse for this. Hope this helps....regards, Katie

Hello Katie

Yes he has dry mouth issues but they are slightly improving. My dad is 7months post chemo and radiation so some things have gradually started to get better but I find the lip peeling thing sooo strange. He is still on the peg and is starting to drink more by mouth so hydration is an issue.
The food still chokes him and I am waiting for the ENT to call with the results of his last swallow study to try to find put what the problem is
He as dilated once but they are saying they think now it is a spasm somewhere. Hopefully I will know more today.
Thanks for your help

My lips peeled a lot during part of treatment. I kept balm in my purse, on the desk, at work, in my coat pocket . . .
