So long as it was just a little bit, not a whole glob that is fine. Bag balm is what is recommended to put on dry cracked feet, and all that is is vaseline (petroleum jelly) and antiseptic.

I use Bag Balm for horses and myself. Good to know it's safe for chins, because I always have some around! That stuff is awesome.

Bag Balm contains lanolin, which is technically an animal product, so initially I wasn't sure if it was okay for chins, but it's good to know it's safe in small amounts.
