Brief Answer:
Cheilitis, topical steroid, moisturising cream & antihistaminic

Detailed Answer:
According to your complaints it seems to be cheilitis which is inflammation of the lips.
I would recommend you to apply topical steroid like mometasone cream on the affected areas twice daily along with application of a moisturising cream like elovera imf cream on the entire lips 3-4 times in a day.
Also take antihistaminic like tablet cetrizine 10 mg once daily at bedtime.
