Yeowch and everybody else in this thread, the problem you have is an inflammation of the lips which might lead to the chronic peeling lips.
Your condition is most likely caused by a sudden onset of intolerance to something or a sudden onset of allergy to something.
Most people suffering from allergies, are not borne with allergies, but have a sudden onset of allergy at some point in their life.
For women, it may be caused by Antibiotics or by the use or exposure to artificial hormones or IUD (birth prevention ? )
