Dark patches spreading around lips, looking burnt

Hello Dr. I have dark patches spreading around my lips . They are underneath my skin and have smooth, round edges. My lips look burnt. I have not been in the sun very much. However, they started coming after I went on a trip, where it was very sunny. I has been more than a mouth and the patches have not gone away. I am a 16 year female
