In brief: Inflammation

Angular chelitis is inflammation of the lips and can include the surrounding skin.
This can be an acute or chronic condition. Causes can include canadiasis, nutritional deficiencies, trauma, ill fitting dental appliances, diabetes, and much more. I recommend you see an oral medicine specialist or even an endocrinologist.
