    I remember lemon cokes.

    Getzen 896 Eterna Flugelhorn (1974), Curry 3FL Mouthpiece.
    Plus a few other Bach, Getzen, Olds, Carol, and Besson horns.

The blistex works the best, but it still doesn't completely prevent the bad chapping that occurs after skipping one or two days of playing. I'm wondering if it is just something normal or possibly lip damage, because I don't know anyone else with this problem. No one seems to have an answer either.

    You might have developed allergy to your mouthpiece... I know this post is old but I really like to inform others who are interested in this topic. I have this problem for a year and its diagnosis is a kind of relief. Everyone who see this post must consider that the term of contact allergy (mouthpiece allergy) is very common. They should try other materials such as gold, lexan (Polycarbonate), derlin etc and also avoid of licking and moisturize their upper lip much with tongue and be aware of playing tongue exercises such as double and triple tongue.Try to dry the lip after and while playing ... in rest between each exercise... due to this stuff (Tongue exercises) would definitely moisturize lips more than other exercises.

    Meanwhile, read this updated information about Cheilitis. It is really informative...Cheilitis
