In brief: See Your Doctor

17 yr old with "dry & itchy around lips".
Your symptoms can be caused by prolonged moisture from saliva around the lips such as would occur with excessive lip-licking. The chronic wetness can break down the skin causing redness, inflammation, & itching. However there are chronic inflammatory conditions that can present with these symptoms, require medications & further investigation. See your Doc
