Halacha - Fast Days
Submitted by sm  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: Dear Rabbi, Can one put on Chapstick on a Fast Day, like Tisha B'Av or Yom Kippur? Thank you.
Answer: The issue with chapstick would not be eating, as it is not ingested nor edible. However, there would be an issue with annointing. Presuming it is being done to avoid painfully chapped lips and not for pleasure, it would be allowed on Tisha b'Av but not on Yom Kippur.
