Infection on lips

Due to my habit, I used to chew my lower lips by my teeth. Now few months back I noticed that a small portion of the lips which I used to bite has got a white patch like skin. Now I've stopped chewing my lips but this patch is not going. When my lips are dried then it seems that it is getting cured but once I drink water or take shower, it gets to its usual appearance. I've tried many skin creams like Betnovate GM (Betamethasone Valerate, Gentamicin, Miconazolenitrate) and Lobate G (Clobetasol Propionate and Gentamicin) but that was of no use.
Please advise me what should I do to cure this problem as soon as possible.
Thanks.

Hello,
This white patch on the lip can be due to fungal infection of the lip o due to thickening of lip after trauma.I would suggest a dermatologist’s evaluation for this as without examination consultation of a diagnosis is tough.In the meanwhile, stop further trauma to the lips and keep your lips well moisturized.

I hope that helps. Please do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional doubts.Warm regards.
