My lips are extremely dry...what is going on?

In the last couple of days my lips have become extremely dry. The first day felt like they were burning and my top lip became swollen, and when i looked in the mirror they were turning white as if they were frostbite. My mom told me to put some ointment on my lips to moisturize them, and it helped at the time. Now, when i woke up this morning they were dry once again and now the ointment seems to not work anymore. I have never experienced this before, what is wrong and what should i do?

Could be from a number of things. Cold weather, licking your lips too much,  or dehydration. Drink lots of water and use chapstick several times a day
