Dry, red patch above upper lip, no blisters. What could it be?

I have had a dry, red patch above my upper lip for 2 months now, no blisters, but it does get dry and crusty. I have been to the doctor twice and have gotten cream and pills for it, it seemed to help but it won t go away. There are no such rashes on any part of my body and have never had a cold sore . What could it be? Also, sometimes it burns and is tight.
