    I don't believe there are any muscles in the lips. Various muscles surround the lips and control them. I use ChopSaver and prefer it for general lip conditioning. Treatments such as Blistex are better suited for cold sores and similar problems.

    I'm not a doctor, but I did stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night.:D

    In the 70's when I was putting in a LOT of time on the horn, I tried rubbing vitamin E on my lips. It seemed to help them heal quicker, but wound up making them softer and more succeptible (-5pts spelling) to damage. But that was just me. What ever works, use it.

    Yeah Glenn now that you have given me the mental image I was lacking in my original post on the matter; I'm picturing Jar Jar Binx from Starwars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace. When the character gets his face (mouth area) shocked by some electric current and his mouth becomes paralyized. Tongue hanging out swinging in the breeze...

    Yeah that would indeed be funny! :lol:
