Hey guys--

I have a cold right now, and because of it the area directly under my nose is incredibly dry. I had a formal the other day, so I (stupidly) got my upper lip waxed. =\

Anyway, I now have this relatively small (but very noticable) dry, burning patch of red skin under my nose. I'm slathering cream on it every second but it's been three days and it's not letting up. Any ideas?

petroleum jelly works for me. dab, rub and don't cheap out on the tissue. use soft tissue.
