Unusual marks on face. Please help.


Over the last few weeks I’ve noticed a really strange red mark above my lip. It’s almost exactly where a moustache would be and follows it round in the same shape, if that makes sense? It’s dry and itchy. I’ve put crazy amounts of moisturiser on there and cleansed regularly but it’s just not shifting. It looks like something was on there e.g makeup and there’s been a reaction but there hasn’t.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what it could be? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Photo attached to give you an idea of what I mean.

Thanks in advance.
