I don't know what to use or what it is ? Please help
Doctor :   Thank you for your question. Although petroleum gel is a relatively inert substance, and is hypoallergenic. It can becom e contaminated with bacteria and when applied to the lips or sensitive areas, it can irritate the the skin. You may need to have your lips examined by a doctor and be prescribed a topical corticosteroid cream to treat this inflammation. Please see your doctor. Thank you for choosing for your medical question.
