Eczema on upper lip

What causes breakouts on my lip when I grow a moustache. I tend to get spots on the corners of my upper lips and right under my nostril. But if I shave I have no problems. Not one breakout. But only when I grow my moustache. Rarely do they itch but will get red and scaly. After applying hydrocortisone they'll clear up in a week or so.  The picture I've posted is a strange new spot that I've never had before. Not scaly and I've never had a spot like this one before.

I don't get eczema anywhere else. Although I have tiny, clear bumps like small warts on my palms and fingers that a dermatologist has deemed eczema although none of the meds they've prescribed clear the condition. They are most prevalent when my hands are wet for awhile. Other than that they are barely noticeable. I can barely feel them although they annoy me.
