Lips disappearing

Several parts of the outside of my lips are turning white.
They are not white growths, it is the red part that is disappearing and becoming white.

What could this be.

Sun damage can blunt the red border of the lips, but that takes place in older people, and mostly on the lower lip.  Perhpas you have an inflammation, allergy, or yeast infection (uncommon, but possible.)  Try using some clotrimazole 1% and hydrocortisone 1% (both OTC) once a day each.  Make an appointment with a skin doctor and try the creams while you wait to be seen.

Best.
