Sticky lips and cotton mouth
What can be the cause of having sticky lips and cotton mouth?
This could be due to dehydration (not taking in enough water or liquids), medications that make the mouth dry, certain diseases that cause dry mouth, or a condition called burning mouth syndrome. You should see an oral pathologist for a complete evaluation of your problem.
