Detailed Answer:
Hi

I understand your concern regarding your skin problem and I hope I am able to help you in the same.

Dryness around lips could either be due to skin xerosis or it could even be suggestive of a fungal infection or nutritional deficiencies.
I would like to have a look at the exact skin condition.
Please click some close up pictures of the affected area and upload them here on this page.
Also please tell what all are you applying over it .
Is there any associated pain or itching or discomfort?
As far as the pigmentation is concerned ,it is surely treatable according to the severity of the problem .
I am sure I will be able to help you better once you provide me the pictures along with the above details.
