In brief: Many causes

First i would look at what you are eating, acidic foods (lemons, limes, oranges, pineapples) can cause irritation around the mouth.
If that doesn't seem to be your cause, then look at the toothpaste you are using and try an all natural one, throw out old lipstick or chapstick. If not the causes see your dermatologist for evaluation and possible biopsy
