It seems that you may be having chelitis.

There is dryness and peeling of labial skin.

There may be some cause.

Sun rays,irritants,allergens,cosmetics,lipsticks,dental cream,drugs,stress,vitamin and nutritial deficiencies,anaemia,immunodeficiencies,some genetic diseases..etc can cause chelitis.

Avoid soap,cosmetics,sun exposure...

Have blood test to rule out systemic diseases.

Apply moisturising cream.

Take folic acid and vitamin E.

A void worries.

Have good sleep and healthy food.

However, you consult dermatologist.
