From this study (2 years ago):
my lips just became severely dry last week. i didn't change my diet. i just wonder if taking benedryl for the past few years every night has caused this all of the sudden or L-lysine which is a new supplement i began taking. nothing is helping my lips. OTC lip therapy balms do not help. it's worse after i brush my teeth, shower and wash my face. whenever i get water on my lips and dry them off it's worse. my eyes were also grainy and dry for the first time and i got prescription allergy drops. they are much better.
