Brief Answer:
This needs to examined by a skin specialist to see if it is vitiligo

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Welcome to Ask a Doctor Service.

I am sorry to hear that you are facing this issue and it is not getting better even after applying lip balm etc.,

Given that, it is difficult to know what is the reason for this whitening of the lips.

We have to first understand the reason for the problem. Only then treatment will be useful.

Unless we treat the main cause, the problem may not get better.

So, I suggest you to consult a skin specialist in person and get it looked at by the skin doctor to find out the real cause for the problem.

I hope that answers your query.

Best wishes
