discoloration on lips

I started noticing some change in color on my lower lip about a yr ago. Recently it has increased. My lips get dry and it then peels and I think as it peels the layers the lighter color comes around. I have dark lips and it is getting embarassing to have a lighter part on my lip. A dermatologist had me on Nystatin and Triamcinolone Acetonide ointment. It helped for some time. Should I continue?

I really have been seeking some answers to this problen I have been facing since I was 14 years old. My bottom lip has pink spots on them. I think it is embarrassing. I have to conceal it with lip stick. After I eat I have to run to the bathroom to make sure they still look presentable. I really need some help.
