Prescription medication for lips?

Anyone know if they make prescription medicine or Chapstick like items for the lips that can be prescribed? My 4yr olds lips burn so bad and get raw and he cries. I put Vaseline and chapsticks on but it isn't helping and he says Chapstick burns. I think he needs something that doesn't easily rub off. Or any other recommendations to soothe and heal quickly?

Aquaphor healing ointment. It heals lips and all skin quickly.

Sorry. There isn't one with medicine that doesn't hurt.

Why don't you just try regular Burt's bees or strawberry Chapstick? Those don't sting

I used Burt's Bee's because its my own personal preference but it didnt seem to work. I think the burn he's talking about is just from his lips being in such bad shape that everything that goes on probably just hurts. His lips are bright dark red like he's wearing Chapstick from how bad they are. I don't know what else to do other than see if a Doctor can prescribe something to use daily that protects them more than just an over the counter product to keep them from getting like that.

Vitamin E (just pop a capsule with a toothpick) or coconut oil

Ditto on the coconut oil. Cocoa Butter as well.
Also, humidifier next to the bed at night, and drink lots of water. Chapped lips are a sign of dehydration.
And if your kid is like mine, always biting their lips.
