Hello there...it looks like you could be suffering from cheillitus. Cheillitus could be due to manu causes like increased sun exposure, dryness, candidiasis. You will have to be examined once to determine the cause. Treatment will usually include emollient along with sunscreen lip balms (in mild cases). In severe cases you might require mild steroid. So kindly consult a dermatologist for further evaluation and treatment.
