Hi Anonymous, thank you for the question.
Your best option would be to consult a dermatologist who can examine the skin and advise you on the best treatment options. From your description it seems that the skin of the lip is sloughing with a resultant inflammatory effect. This may be due to a reaction (dermatitis) or a form of eczema or a form of dry skin (xerosis). Following from this most of these conditions would need some form of prescription medicine to treat them correctly.
