Sounds like something called Cheilitis Exfoliatava. This is best treated by a dermatologist in person. If you cannot see one easily then you can try a skin repair cream like Avene Cicalfate morning and night and a lip balm such as Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Lip Balm every 3-4 hours. Avoid licking your lips. Drink at least 2-3 Liters of water everyday and take Vitamin B complex on a daily basis for at least 6 weeks. Please note that the information I have provided is for general purposes only ...
