Detailed Answer:
Hello
Welcome to HCM.
I appreciate your concerns.I have gone through your pictures.
it looks like you are suffering from stomatitis.
This is the inflammation of lips.
Mostly occuring due to vitamin deficiencies.
I see that you have tried so many medications.
I shall advise you to take multivitamin tablets like "A to Z" for 4 weeks, and clobetasone+fluconazole combi oinment.
Also consult your doctor.
