Split lip - wont heal

hi

I got sick about 2 months ago and dehydrated. My lip split but it wil not heal. I have tried zambuk and vicks but everytime it almost gets better it splits again (usually opening my mouth to eat or brush my teeth). Everytime it splits it seems to get deeper and it looks like its going to scar.

Please tell me what i can do or user to get it to heal?

Hallo Anon
If it is the corner of the mouth, try taking vit B co supplements and using Bactroban ointment on the area. If it is on the lip itself, try Kenalog in orobase ointment - thickly applied.
