Our lips have more than a million nerve endings and are much more sensitive than our fingertips. They need special care. Sometimes they can signal to us that we have some real problems with our health and that we need to pay proper attention to these conditions.
1. Cracks at the corners of your mouth
When saliva gets trapped in the corners of your mouth, it dries out skin that can crack. You might lick your lips often and warmth and moisture in the corners create the perfect conditions for infections.
Infection is the most common cause of these cracks. If it happens too often, please don’t hesitate to go to a doctor.
