Lip Psoriasis Is A Thing Of The Past

Come here you!

It’s pretty unusual to get psoriasis on your lips, but it does happen. I know because I used to get it all the goddamn time.

It was especially bad when I was travelling long-distance. Take into account the dry air on the plane, the air-con at the hotel, and a new atmosphere, and my lips would burst into tiny flakes.

Instead of having a pair of juicy smackers… mine would end up resembling a pair of crispy sausages. Kissing, blowing raspberries, all of these were out of the equation.

Of course, a normal lip moisturizer works for normal, chapped lips, but when you have lip psoriasis, they can be wholly inadequate. Like trying to douse a volcano with a water pistol!

And then I found Dr Dans CortiBalm

Dr Dans Cortibalm really kicks ass if you have lip psoriasis.

Seriously, it brought my zombie lips back to life in a matter of days, at a point when they looked like they were about to fall off.

And the reason it works? It’s the only lip balm, to my knowledge, that is mixed with hydrocortisone.

I’m not a fan of steroid creams in general, but Dr Dans only has 1% of it, and it works quickly on thin areas of skin, such as lips.

As far as lip balms go, it’s miles better than your average fair: it’s made with a blend of nutritive beeswax, petroleum jelly and mineral oil.

What others say about it

Dr Dans Cortibalm has an amazing reputation on Amazon.

One of my favourite reviews of it is from this 22 year old guy. If you have lip psoriasis that has covered your lips, they’re burning up, pulsating, and everyone is looking at you like you must have caught it from making out with a hooker… You will understand his relief!

Steven: “I have extremely dry skin above my lips, and cracks in the corner. I have had this on and off since I was about 13. I have tried aquaphor, blistex, carmex, baycuten, beyipher, bepanthen, chapstick, vitamins, I drank tons of water AND NOTHING HELPED! I got Dr Dans lip balm this Friday at 6pm. The dryness above my lips burned, itched and I looked like a freak. Also my college semester just started and of course my new classmates looked at me like I have swine flu. Anyways, I put the balm on Friday and today it is Sunday. My lips are about 95% healed already. I seriously cannot believe it. If I ever see this Dr. Dan guy I will kiss him and tell him I love him. (I’m a 22 year old male).”

    I took your advice and ordered this product and it has been helpful. I just want to caution that yes, it is a weak steroid, but it is STILL a steroid. So you should really only use this for occasional flare-ups. Do not use it as an everyday lip balm. I discussed with my dermatologist.
