This may seem ridiculous, but...
DH has had a little crack or cut on his lip for over a month. It used to be more purplish and now blends in better. It scabs over every night while he sleeps and in the morning the scab comes off. He's tried putting lots of different stuff on it (polysporin for lips, chapstick, vaseline, cold sore medication - nothing works). It just won't heal.
Who cares right?? DH does!!! He'a a hypochondriac and somehow his warped mind has him thinking this is some kind of skin or lip cancer. He won't go to the doctor though (especially since he just finished with a bout of "colon cancer" that he saw the doctor for several times).
So tell me please that there is someone out there who has had a non-healing lip wound and that it eventually went away. What should he be putting on it? He tried nothing for awhile and said his lips were just too dry (even though he has NEVER had a lip moisture problem).
