Hi You seem to be having angular chelitis. This condition may be due to vitamins deficiency or a minor fungal infection. Avoid licking lips as this could worsen the condition. Use lip balm frequently. Try a Vit B multi vitamin thrice a day for a week. If not better please contact a dermatologist who can examine you and prescribe some anti inflammatory creams and anti fungal creams
