I have severely peeling and chapped lips.

hi i am a 27 year old female and i have had severley chapped lips for about 7 months. i have tried everything on them - vaseline, carmex, blistex, honey etc and nothing helps. they constantly are peeling and a white coating appears which is quite hard to rub off. it was all on the bottom lip but in last few weeks the centra point of top lip keeps peeling to leave a very red patch underneath, looks scabby which just highlights how off colour my lips are. the gp prescribed daktacort which did nothing and then hydrocortisone cream and still no improvement. they look and feel awful and i have lost all my confidence as everyone stares at them. please help
