Hello doctor,

My skin around the lip is always dry and peeling off. I tried applying all natural moisturizers like ghee, olive oil, etc. My doctor has asked me to take Neurobion for vitamin deficiency. Still, no improvement related to dryness. Kindly suggest a remedy for this.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I suggest you apply Flutivate (Fluticasone propionate) cream, twice daily for a week. Thereafter, I suggest you apply NMF-e lip balm, 2 to 3 times in a day.

Thank you doctor,

Please specify mg or doses. Is this medicine Fluticasone cream IP or Fluticasone BP? Again, can it be applied on the lips or surrounding area only? Is there any harm if it is licked or any side effects?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Fluticasone propionate 0.05 % cream (Flutivate cream) twice daily for a week. It is safe to be used on lips and surrounding skin. There is no untoward side effect even if it is licked.
