Since when are you having the symptoms? What is your age?
Some causes could be lip biting, lip licking, Vit.B2 deficiency, smoking, overexposure to sun and ill fitting dentures or even trauma - as in your case. In extreme cases, this could be due to bacterial or fungal skin infection.
You need to drink plenty of water daily – around 1.5 – 3 litres per day. Do not keep your lips dry; apply lip balm which contains sunscreen – preferably a medicated one.
If you have cracks at the corner of your mouth it indicates B2 deficiency in this case you need to take B2 supplements.
If the symptoms still persist, consult your skin specialist or dermatologist.

Thank you for your comment! I am currently 21 and I don't remember a time when I did not have chapstick for fear of dry lips. I am not sure what I have exactly, I just know that I would love to stop the peeling and minimize the scarring as best I can. I am not familiar with B2 supplements; what are they? and how may I attain them? I have seen other people with my issue, but unlike me, they are smokers. I have never smoked a day in my life and my lips have continued to peel into a red scar. Thank you for your help an any more insight from you and others is definitely welcome!
Glad that the postw as of some help to you.
You need to stop biting or peeling your lips. Vitamin B complex tablets are avalable at all pharmacies and is an OTC preparation.
You could ask you prescribe you one, and also something for local application on the lips.
