Dry and peeling lips

Hi, I'm wondering if anyone has ever had a dental issue that has caused chronic chapped lips? My lips continually dry and peel and are very uncomfortable. I've seen both a dermatologist and allergist, tried many lip balms, prescription strength topical steroid and antibiotic ointments, vitamins, cleansing diets, etc. No luck. I wonder if I may have some underlying dental issue going. Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Seeing an oral medicine specialist is advised.

Thank you very much! Are you aware if such a specialist tends to practice independently or in partnership with dental practice? I haven't been able to find such a specialist in my area. (I live in an urban area of reasonable size.) I appreciate your help.
