Lips always dry and odd,

So, I've tried everything. Blistex, caramax, Suncreen lip protection, Vasline both tub and lip therapy and admittedly used to pick continously and stuff. My upper lip is constantly pale and there is a dent in the top of my lip, What can I do? Maybe it's anemia, I eat awful, have lines on my nails and just feel dead and weak!

Have you been tested for anaemia by your GP? That sounds like a plan!

No, I haven't, I'm today due to severe anxiety maybe I can mention that too?

I would also look at Sjogrens.. that is common with that condition (although I hope you don't - it is not a nice condition).

With dry lips you must keep them moisturized at all times.Do not let them dry out. I use vaseline all the time when at home then a lip one in a tube when I am out. it is most important to keep them moist. Coat them in moisturizer before you go to bed and then again through the night and every time after you have had a meal.
