Kid are getting high off lip balm.

Heads up parents, if you see your kids with some Burt's Bee's lip balm, it may not be for chapped lips.  It's the latest viral sensation and it's called "Beezin'."

Here's how it works, kids take the lip balm and rub it on their eyelids.  Word is it gives them the sensation of being drunk or high.

Doctor Brett Cauthen of the Today Clinic says "
The peppermint oil in the lip balm is a very strong irritant and can cause inflammation in the eye, redness of the eye, swelling."  Dr. Cauthen ads "Beezin" may also cause pink eye-like symptoms.
