Cracked Lips

Your lips can say a lot about your health. Severely cracked, dry lips may be a reaction to medication, an occupational hazard (if you're a brass musician), or a symptom of allergy, infection, or other conditions.

Cracking at the corners of the mouth may be a symptom of Sjögren's (pronounced
SHOW-grens) syndrome, an immune system disorder. Sjögren's causes dry eyes and dry mouth, as well as joint pain and dry skin. As many as 4 million Americans—mostly women—have this condition.
