    Hey everyone =)

    As of now I have chapped lips, that arn't really bad, but they prevent me from playing really good and they've killed my range and tone in the high range( and sometime low).
    Normally there's no fear, but this friday I have a jazz concert (which we're playing moanin' so im gunna need my double d's for the solo sections) and it's been 3 days and my lips havn't healed. Knowing my luck, they probably wont heal in time. So this being said, does anyone know a good way to cure chapped lips, and fast?

    I appreciate the time in all who help me out.

    If you can't get Chop Saver in time go to the drug store and buy a can of Bag Balm. Put it on your lips at night and during the day when not playing.
    I think you will have to wipe it off before you play. Don't blow it through the horn. It has bees wax in it. Read the label and contents.

    Drink plenty of fluid is a must. There is a product in Australia called Paw Paw ointment (made from the fruit) It is the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    There might be an overseas version but if not,the product is called Lucas' Papaw Ointment

    Honestly. The australian environment is harsh and I have tried everything.
