Consistent white and dark patch on the lower lip. No improvement with medicines. Remedy?

For a few years I have had a white patch about 1cm and a darker patch about 1/2cm and a dark spot centre on my lower lip .I have seen two specialists and tried various creams,oil and moisturisers,with no success.I try to keep lipstick or cremes on so they do not get dry as I tend to keep licking them if they do .Any advice would be appreciated.

CONSISTENT WHITE PATCH CAN BE DUE TO VITILIGO LIPS AND DARK PATCH IS ONLY DUE TO POST INFLAMMATORY HYPERPIGMENTATION.USE A PLACENTREX GEL WHICH LOOKS AFTER WHITE PATCH IN THE MORNING AND FLUTIVATE OINTMENT IN THE NIGHT WHICH LOOKS AFTER BOTH WHITE AND DARK PATCHES
