Dr. Dan's CortiBalm, developed and proven by a leading dermatologist, is specially formulated for all types of chapped lips. If your lips are chapped due to weather, cosmetics, sunburn or medications, the ingredients in ordinary lip balms may irritate them and prevent healing.
After years of experimentation, I developed CortiBalm for my patients with chapped lips. CortiBalm is a mild hypoallergenic blend of beeswax, petroleum jelly, mineral oil and 1% Hydrocortisone. It does not contain ingredients found in other lip balms that often irritate the sensitive layer of skin on your lips. CortiBalm works when many other lip balms do not and is covered by a 100% Money Back Guarantee.
Inactive IngredientsPetroleum jelly, beeswax, mineral oil.
Accutane patientsAccutane and other isotretinoin products have numerous side effects including very dry skin and dry, painful, chapped lips. Some Accutane users have such painful chapped lips, that they have to discontinue their treatment. Many solutions have been tried to treat the side effects of Accutane, but none have worked as well as Dr. Dan’s Cortibalm. After only 3 days of treatment, most isotretinoin users have complete relief of their symptoms. Many have significant relief in the first 24 hours of use. Cortibalm contains hydrocortisone that helps to reduce the swelling, dryness and pain that occurs from the use of Accutane and many other medications.
AllergiesAllergies are hypersensitive reactions of the immune system. Reactions range from mild to severe. They may be associated with runny nose, eczema, asthma or even anaphylactic shock and death. They result in an increased production of the immunoglobulin IgE. The overproduction of IgE results in the excessive activation of specific white cells called mast cells and basophils. These cells contain packets of histamine that can produce hives, itching and redness. Oral and topical steroids, antihistamines, and immunosuppressants are helpful in reducing the symptoms associated with these reactions.
Dr Dan’s Cortibalm and Dr. Dan’s Hand Lotion both work to reduce the symptoms of itching, swelling and redness associated with allergic reactions. Routine application can help your lips and skin feel softer and smoother.
Chemotherapy patientsChemotherapy can cause many side effects including dry skin and chapped lips. The exact cause of these side effects depends on the type of drugs used but is often related to the decrease in oil production by the glands in your skin. Many of the side effects go away after discontinuing the medication but treatment is available to reduce the discomfort associated with the dry skin and chapped lips. Dr. Dan’s Cortibalm and Dr. Dan’s Hand Lotion both work to reduce the dryness and inflammation associated with the use of chemotherapeutic medications. They can make the discomfort of going through chemotherapy treatment more tolerable.
Cold SoresWhen the Herpes virus is active, the body's immune system tries to fight it, ultimately leading to swelling and blisters. Almost all dermatologists treat the virus with oral or topical prescription anti-viral medications. While they ultimately work by attacking the virus, they do nothing for the inflammation, or the symptoms. On the other hand, Dr. Dan’s Cortibalm goes to work immediately on the inflammation and pain by using Hydrocortisone in a mild base, without any other harsh chemicals that could actually worsen the situation.
Sensitive SkinSensitive, dry skin and painful cuticles are problems that many people encounter, especially in dry weather. These symptoms may be caused by excessive bathing or hand washing, low relative humidity especially during the winter months, vitamin A and D deficiency, illness, sunburn, or certain medications. Dr. Dan’s Cortibalm and Dr. Dan’s Hand Lotion can help reduce the dryness, pain, and itchy feeling associated with these conditions. They will make your lips and skin fill softer and smoother with routine use.
