Eczema/dry spot below lower lip with tiny red dots in it and slight dry feeling on lips despite putting lip balm and bepanthen cream on it, what to do?

Hard to way: Without a photo, I cannot be sure what the problem is. You could be allergic to one of the products you are using. Are you licking the area a lot? This would make it worse. Your best bet is to see a dermatologist who does patch testing, to see if you are allergic to something you are using.
