Hi, thanks for posting your query

You seem to have had chelitis which led to postinflamatory hyperpigmentation (turning black)

You may do the following:

Azaelic acid cream at night

A lipbalm with a sunscreen during the day like blistex lip balm

You may undergo peels with glycolic acid

Avoid licking of the lips

avoid other lip cosmetics

Hope this solves your query
