Common Questions and Answers about Dark lips in winter

Avatar f tn My 9 year old daughter played outside in the snow and her lips became chapped and dry around her lips. The area around her lips has turnedd dark brown, I applied neosporin and later cold sore treatment thinking that is what is was. A week has passed and the white dryness has disappeared but the dark discoloration has not. My daughter is hispanic and already has a light tan color but I am concerned the dark patch around her mouth will not go away. Any other medications I should be using?
Avatar f tn Also I have noticed when I was appoximately 17 my lips would turn so dark that people would notice and ask me if I was wearing dark lipstick or if I was smoking marijuana. This coloration would last for 3-4 months long and then slowly it would return to my regular lip color. However sometimes I could tell when this was going to happen.
Avatar m tn chap ice has a menthol in it that is probably irritating your lips! try cold compresses and vaseline or even neosporin but dont use the neosporin unless you okay it with your doctor... but the vaseline helps with me i get like how you do but only in the winter and it helps me alot! i hope this works for you aswell! good luck!
Avatar f tn Hi, I always had rosy pink lips but then when my lips used to get dry in winter I used to care less and used to lick it and had the habit of lip biting. I also noticed the change in color of my lip after starting to use lipsticks as my lips started getting darker in color. I don't smoke or drink. In mid 2012 I noticed a tiny dark spot on my lip I was so anxious to get rid of it I bought a sugar lip scrub and scrubbed my lips very roughly.

Avatar n tn Use a humidifier to moisturize the air in your home and apply shea butter or Vaseline on your lips. Eat foods high in calcium, magnesium and flaxseed oil. If a week of compresses and emollients don't do the trick, you can add over-the-counter 1 percent hydrocortisone ointment to your regimen. I hope that helps. Please do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional doubts.Warm regards.
Avatar f tn My lips have been dry & chapped all winter, sometimes they'll get a sore too if I don't keep using chap stick. Late November a dark spot cropped up underneath of the skin on my lower lip. I don't know where it came from ... it just formed one night. My boyfriend pointed it out to me. It was small at first & the skin was still smooth. Over the next few days the skin there became really dry and the spot grew bigger & darker.
Avatar f tn In addition to all this, my upper lip has spots on it, and I have a dark ring around my mouth. I think the spots are from sun damage, as my lips were a very light pink when I was younger. The dark ring around my mouth goes away depending on what I eat. Its very irritating to be itchy and dry all the time, and I need a change. What recommendations do you have for very dry skin and sun damaged lips?
Avatar m tn I love dermatology, hate those little irritating bumplets (my word) that tend to make me feel less than beautiful or in your case HANDSOME. We all deal with such in one way or the other, as only complexions in MAGAZINES ARE AIRBRUSHED PERFECTLY. See another dermatologist until you get it right. I will do some quick research in my books and get back to you on this also. Do answer my questions--so I can find some answers for us.
Avatar m tn So, my lips were already chapped (always in winter) but the corner of my mouth even split so I've been using the medicated chap stick liberally. I have no known allergies and am a male, 32. Yesterday I woke up after going out for the night and in the dark when I awoke I could feel my lips were swollen tremendously. About 3 to 4 times their size and looked like tiny little blisters were forming all the way across them, almost unnoticeable unless looked at closely.
Avatar f tn When i was detoxing I couldn't even look in the mirror. My lips were the same color as the rest of my face, kinda greyish. And the dark circles under my eyes from lack of sleep were beautiful as well! lol I walked around for almost a month with my hair in a scrunchie and no makeup. I put makeup on the other day, and my husband commented on how good I looked. I'm not sure if it was because i'm off hydros, or because he hadn't seen me cleaned up in awhile.
Avatar f tn Not all migraines result in a headache.This could be as far as it goes, numbness in your lips and hands. Some people experience visual problems, zig zag vision or flashes. I doubt that being exposed to the sun has anything to do with it. You would have developed a headache or a low grade fever by now if you had heat stroke. Have you checked with your dr yet? Cath278.
Avatar n tn in the last two weeks i have had three blood vessels just pop in my fingers. i was not doing anything out of the ordinary. what could be causing this? should there be a cause for concern?
Avatar f tn for about 6 months now i have had this itchy spot on my upper right arm within my tattoo. once i start scratching it gets worse and i have to stop myself or else ill bleed.once i started scratching the first spot it has now turned into 5. there is one now that is not on the tattoo. i have had this tattoo for over 7 years without a problem. its seems to itch once or twice a day and doesnt go away even if i cover it with creams and bandaids.
Avatar n tn He said that the scans don't show any cause for this to be happening and it looks like it is curving in rather than the bone thinning in that area. At this point it isn't affecting my brain, so he wants me to repeat the scans in October and come back so he can see if there are any changes. Keep in touch if you find anything out about yours. and feel free to send me a message in my inbox - I have a watch on this post and my inbox and I recieve an email whenever anyone posts to it.

Avatar f tn Reglan (metoclopromadine) is a very cheap medication, unfortunately, it is also metabolized in the kidneys, so a too high dose results in toxic levels in the blood. My husband and I discovered that completely bypassing the GI tract by using reglan injections worked much better in the end. Chica didn't get the extra pyramidal side effects (extreme restlessness, shaking and trembling) from the reglan injections that she got from the oral meds.
Avatar n tn Sometimes it seems that it comes on later in the afternoon almost routine and then it sometimes happens out of the blue in the morning. I try to change my underwear twice a day and don't wear any underwear at nigh for bed. I'm not sure what triggers this...I know about 2.5 years ago I got a really nasty vaginal infection..Then it was treated and I've been tested for STD's all negative. I sometimes wonder if it came from the boyfriend at that time.
Avatar n tn can you tell me if the vitamin E cream has helped you in the long run and if the dark skin in and around the corner of the lips has disappeared ? My son last July got th├Ęse cold sores for the first time on his lips right after a conjunctivitis and healed from it but just few weeks later we had to travel to India and it turned more darker and visible...as if He was having a moustache ...guess that list the hot weather that have accelerated the darkness...
Avatar f tn I have one in my left ear, my dad has one in his right and my brother has one in each ear! I have one at the end of my nose, too, though it's not as noticeable as the one in my ear. Does anyone else have another one in a different part to their ear?! And does anyone know if they are the same thing?
Avatar f tn I tried to remove one with tweezers, and it was very tacky (as in sticky) and clearly goes deep under the skin. Part of it broke off but I could still see that the pore was plugged and a day or two later top of the plug was sticking out again. i can't find ANYTHING online that looks like it.
Avatar f tn Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg, especially on one side of the body Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination Sudden, severe headache with no known cause Take action in an emergency. Not all the warning signs occur in every stroke. Don't ignore signs of stroke, even if they go away! Check the time. When did the first warning sign or symptom start?
Avatar n tn I don't have any symptoms yet, except for my period being early once in a while. I am 44 years old, and have gone, in 2 weeks, from having 44 year old skin to skin of a 60 year old. Could someone please help? I'm very distressed.
Avatar m tn I went to the doctor back in October I believe because I felt like I had something stuck in my throat and I had a very minute ammount of blood in my saliva when I spit. Anyway, he told me I have a sinus infection and gave me antibiotics. Now I have always had allergies and plenty of sinus infections and I knew this was no sinus infection. So I take the antibiotics and nothing changes. So I go back to the same doctors office to see a different doctor.
Avatar n tn ( that ewwy smell.. can u help me.. please...
Avatar n tn Recently though, my lips were very chapped, an occurrence I'm quite used to in the winter. I never really use chapstick on a regular basis so I just ignored it. Until, I noticed a very tiny dark dot.
Avatar m tn Does it do that to you guys? winter is soooo long where I live and I live in the southern backwoods. You caint go outside and its dark at 5:45pm every evening. It su cks. Thats another reason I want to move. Where I want to move it is 80 degrees today. I can taste the salt water from the wind on my lips right now..... The warm sun blasting me in the face. It is beautiful. I think I really need a new beginning and surroundings But I dont think I will be able to run from my demons...
Avatar n tn i too have the same problem(peeling lips) since an year.initially it was in lower lips now its started in the upper also,it all started after a small infection,my lip got bulged heavily and got normal after some days. i went many doctors and used many lip balms but it remained same no cure was found.
