These few weeks I have been practicing much more than usual because my music got a lot harder. Three weeks ago I split my lip in two spots. Both were on my top lip. Then last week it started to get better but today after my practice my lips are now split in 8 different spots, 5 on the top and 3 on the bottom. My lips are also very swollen and red and puffy and sometimes when I'm playing they start to bleed, and when that happens I take my ChopSaver out. So does anyone know how to heal split lips and how to prevent them from happening next time? Thanks. Edit: My lips also itches and feels really dry while I'm playing.
