Avatar n tn UPDATE I took my daughter to GP today who thinks my daughter has damaged capillaries around her lips due to excessive licking during eczema episode on lips thats why she has stained.He has also advised me to continue using hydrocortisone for one week.Does this mean its PIH or he means something else. He has refered my daughter to Dermatalogist.I should be able to see him in one week time. My family does have history of asthama. and my daughter also suffers from pityriass Alba in summer time.
1169641 tn?1263281841 Good afternoon, I suddenly noticed some dark patches around my upper and lower lips corners sometime in January 2015, and till now, these patches are still present. Also my lips feel dry very often and upon applying a chap-stick, they start to peel to the extent that I sometimes have blisters. I don't smoke or take alcohol so this experience is extremely hurtful and strange. Please, kindly assist. Many thanks in anticipation of your response.

Avatar f tn I recently noticed within the last week or so that my lips have become extremely dry and I'm beginning to have dark circles under my eyes. I work all day on a computer and I don't eat any red meat or pork, so I'm curious as to what this may be. Can somebody give me some clues?
Avatar n tn As a result I have a lighter colored patch on one part of my lip. My lips are a dark red, but because of all the peeling, theres a pinkish patch that looks pretty odd...similar to the patch smokers get. (I dont smoke). I do use a chapstick, thats because my lips tend to feel dry. What can I do about the peeling? Thanks!
Avatar f tn I am very careful with what I put on my lips no and I do need to drink more water. Thanks. I thin what I really need is to get an allergy skin test, because this is just not working for me. I do follow all the advice given though. again thnks..
Avatar f tn On my bottom lips, some are partly red and some are dark, and there are also a few light speckles that almost form a line between the red and the dark area of the bottom lip. is there a way to reverse this or treat this discoloration because it REALLY bothers me! thanks! i also got a photo. sorry that its not too clear but hope you can help!
Avatar n tn I was thinking you were talking about the Vaginal Lips.. haha. The same is true about the lips lips to that nothing is going to show up the next day...
Avatar m tn Last year around this same time, I went to my family doctor and he said I had Emphitigo (i dont think i spelled it right) and at that time, my lips werent red on the surrounding areas, they were cracked and turning orange, along with a dark brown crust forming on the right side. He prescribe amoxicillian and some ointment, after about 2 weeks my lips looked completely normal, I didnt use any chapstick at this time. After I went through the cycle he said I would no longer need it. He was wrong.
Avatar m tn I already went to the dermatoligist, but they refused to do anything about it.
Avatar f tn its between my noses and my lips. its started wen i was little with blowing my nose and just stayed dark for ever. now for a year now it has gotten worse. i scratch it because it itches then it gets red, then dry and becomes a kind of scab gets soft and stays dark. wen i put vasline onit it goes away after about 3 days but it always seems to come back. i was wondering if this could be more then just scratching my lip or rubbing it, could it be an infection or rash because it keeps coming back?
Avatar m tn Swollen Lips Red Patches on Lips, Extending to Exterior Area Severely Itchy Cracks at Corners of Mouth Discoloration of Lips in which they become Lighter in Color around the Red Patches No Sores in Mouth No Sore Throat Consistently Dry Feeling - as though nothing (literally) can be absorbed by my lips Red Ring Surrounding Edges of Lips I don't know what to do. This happened very suddenly, without any changes in lifestyle.
Avatar f tn Every few days, I wake up to find that my face is slightly flushed, and my lips are very reddish-pink. When I see this, I think I look great -- but a friend said that this may indicate that something is wrong. Something about carbon monoxide? But there is nothing utilizing gas or combustion during the summer, and the propane tank has been empty for 8 months. I drink lots of water, my lips are rarely dry or chapped, and my skin has excellent capillary rebound, so I know that I am not dehydrated.
Avatar n tn My tongue and lips has dark spots. What causes this and how can i get rid of this. My lips are one my greater qualities.
Avatar m tn What can cause a dark spot on the lips, as if there was a concentration of blood beneath the surface? There is no actual bleeding, and no sensations whatsoever. The skin is otherwise normal, no blister or anything. The lips are a normal color, aside from the one darker area. I have a severe cold sore phobia and the lips belong to a family member I live with.
Avatar f tn My 13 month old grand daughter has dark purple lips, hands and feet with like red blotches. They are warm to touch. She was taken to emergency room today and no one had a clue what could be wrong. She has had watery diarrihea, but, is not really irritable. We have been pushing fluids and she's not dehydrated. The doctor said he would refer her to doctor in Madison, Wisconsin, as they are specialists in rheumatalogy there.Have no clue what to expect.
Avatar f tn It does not mean that you lick the lips, but it is due to that redness or erythema around the lips is common in lip lickers and hence the term. Treatment consists of topical and oral antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs. A mild soap or soap substitute, such as Dove or Cetaphil should be used for washing. Scrubbing should be avoided. My sincere advice would be to get it evaluated from a dermatologist and also rule out eczema. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar n tn Sometimes they're pimples and sometimes they're dark red blotches. I decided to not put anything at all on them, and let them heal. Except they still haven't gone away! My lips were so chapped that I put blistex medicated ointment on it last night (which i have used before and assumed to be okay), and when i woke up this morning there are red blothces all over my lips!!
Avatar n tn when i was 7 years old, my lips were pink and beautiful as i used to apply vaseline coming in higher classes i got busy and left the habit then i started getting dark lips, my mother suggested to continue the habit and so i did and started putting petroleum jelly twice everyday but the darkness on the side of my lips and on my lips continued and even after going to many dermatoligists and using different medicenes gave no change ! im now in deseprate need of help!
Avatar n tn After about 10 minutes, her lips went back to their normal colour. I have noticed she is sensitive to cold after a bath etc. Should I be concerned?
Avatar n tn At this point there was only a faint outline of a red mustache. I did about 4 treatments (2 the whole face and 2 just the lips). After 2 years of this, I didn't notice any change and I am afraid that this is what made it worse. Soon there was no hair growing in my mustache line but there was still the redness/darkness. Current Derm: He said I had an infection and pseudofolliculitis. He put me on antibiotics and Differin (night) and Cleocyn (morning). This time I did notice a change to my skin.
Avatar n tn two days ago, I noticed some cold sores around my lower lip and mistakenly applied wart gel on it. It burned and later developed a dark looking spot around the area. what do I need to do to remedy this problem. Thank you.
Avatar f tn I have been reading all through out these forums for some time now to try to find some answers...Some people describe their symptoms and I feel like its what I have but I dont have answers..My blood test came back saying I have herpes. .I feel all ****** up because my pap came back abnormal after being with my ex and then we broke up and i found out I have hpv too..
Avatar m tn Swelling, pain, discoloration can be due to any allergy or infection. Low iron levels can lead to decreased hemoglobin and pale lips. As you mentioned she’s a smoker and on marijuana she needs a complete rehabilitation programme.What is this rash around the lips? A clinical examination is very important for an accurate diagnosis. Treatment will depend on the cause. Drinking lots of water and fluids will be really helpful to regain the lost moisture.
Avatar n tn I've been using it for almost a full week now and haven't experienced much improvement. My lips are turning dark red in certain areas, are a bit raised/puffy, flaking skin at times, and the corners flake as well. I find that my lips burn the worst when I have a glass of wine (could that de a cause?). I thought that this condition could be related to Psoriasis (which I've had for over 15 years). After conducting my own research, it seems as though it may be Cheilitis.
