In brief: Some thoughts...

Persistent chapped lips may be lip eczema, which can be treated like skin eczema, using Hydrocortisone cream, plus vaseline or Aquaphor to moisturize.
Sometimes, lipsticks or lip sunscreen chemicals are causing an allergic reaction on the lips. Other times, a person is a primary lip-licker (it's his habit). Once cracked, lips get irritated by routine foods and juices. A doctor can sort things out.
