all day today my upper lip and part of my lower lip keep turning a pasty color, i can put water on them and the color goes back to normal for about 1 minute then back to beeing pasty they go. It could just be chapped lips but there not cut or really chapped just diffrent color then normal. I have been tested already for anemia and it was a negitive of course that was like 3 weeks ago. if it is chapped lips what brands are safe i have some blistex medicated ointment but i dont have the box it came in anymore

your lips, as they get "pre-chapped" (my name ;-) ) change colour a bit here and there - they're not the exact same color every hour of every day. as long as they're not looking blue or purple, it's unlikely to be a big problem. keep an eye on them from time to time over the next three weeks and see how they change.

Blistex and Carmex tear up my lips....I use Bag Balm - it was originally made for cows' udders - seriously - but is sold in the drug store for humans as a soothing balm. They have a smaller container that I carry in my purse. Love it!
