Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is Uzair.

Please attach picture of her lips here.

I added a better picture so you can see her lips.
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 1 month ago.

This seems to be charring and abrasion of lips due to repeated irritation. It is not cold sores. Nothing much to worry about. Apply thick layer of vaseline over her lips specially at night when she sleeps.

Let me know if you have further questions.
