What causes very red chapped lips on a child?

home treatments question by lsansinglemom: What triggers extremely red chapped lips on a youngster?
He went to pals house and came home with really red chapped lips. He looks like he has taken lipstick and place it all around the outdoors of his mouth. I have been placing vaseline on it. It is not that cold out so what induced this? The top of his lip is very dry to touch. Any help would be great. He has to go to college tommorow. Could he be dehydrated? Thanks!
He is 10 years old

im not confident how outdated your youngster is but i have a three and five yr old…and they get actually chapped lips this time of the year because they are constantly licking there lips.
