Dark lips whitening

Common Questions and Answers about Dark lips whitening


Avatar n tn i live in the caribbean, and i have dark lips, the ring around my lips are even darker, can anyone tell me how to get rid of it....
Avatar m tn About 2 months ago, I went to visit my physician regarding a problem I had with a ring of redness around my lips - more prominent on my bottom lip - it was a lighter, tender pink shade and kind of looked like I had been drinking lots of red kool-aid. I also had constant dry, cracked and bleeding lips, and tried everything from drinking plenty of water and making sure I wasn't licking them.
Avatar n tn Treatment of Fordyce spots includes CO2 laser or electro desiccation, TCA chemical peels(temporary treatment),diathermy or laser vaporization. For your dry lips, avoid licking the lips as saliva evaporates quickly resulting in them being drier than before. Drink plenty of water and take multivitamin supplements(esp vit B) and do not apply lipstick or other cosmetic products for some days. Use a humidifier to moisturize the air in your home and apply shea butter or Vaseline on your lips.
Avatar n tn My boyfriend, my sister, and myself have all had this problem. It is caused by all whitening toothpastes. We stopped using whitening toothpastes and the very next day the lip skin problem stopped and did not return. It's something in the whitening toothpaste. Try it. You'll see.
Avatar n tn Hello...My lips are a very dark brown almost black colour and I would like to lighten them a bit...I would like to use a strong whitening lotion or gel on my lips...something like licorice extract?...Do you think it would help...I would make sure that I do not get anything in my mouth...anybody have any other ideas?....
Avatar m tn Hi, I have a really dark area around the corner of my mouth - it's quite large on one side of my mouth. It's not on the lips or on the upper lip (moustache area). It's really noticeable. Is it because of the chapped lips I had? It isn't sore/painful. What can I/should I use? I have some Bio-Oil at home - would scar treatments help? Or is it some sort of pigmentation thing? I've read around a bit and many products contain Hydroquinone...
Avatar n tn i have a couple of dry slightly dark patches on my lips as well. they usually flake off but then reappear. i suspect this may be related to anti depressants. im on avanza 15mg and ive noticed this started when i was put onto this medication. would anyone whom has posted their concerns by chance be also on any anti depressants???
Avatar n tn I also get little boyles in between the thighs. so not only is it dark, but scarred w/ dark spots from the boyles. Tell me I'm not alone please.
Avatar n tn I am white, and I have dark skin discoloration under my arms and in the vaginal area. It is embarrassing to me to even go to the doctor to ask about it because it looks "dirty". Is there any way that I can fix this problem or is it normal?
Avatar n tn For the past 10 years I have had really sensitive lips and have only been able to use one type of lip balm. As anything else - lip sticks of glosses give me little sores on my lips and cause them to puff up and get little scabs and peel contantly - i also get dry patches under my eyes and eye lids. When I visited a doctor they told me I may have an allergy to nail polish and an ingrediant in lip glosses/balms its also happens when I were nail polish.
Avatar n tn I brush it off when I brush my teeth but it keeps coming back. It was real dark when it first appeared but I noticed it is getting lighter so hopefully it will disappear altogether. I thought it was an after affect of the medication.
Avatar n tn I am also allergic to mint, menthol, peppermint and spearmint. It's a pain, it used to just cause my lips to swell but it can give me a rash and make me break out. The toothpaste I use is Toms of Maine Silly Strawberry, it's the kids brand but it words well, they also make a lemon/lime mouthwash and I don't have a problem with it.
Avatar n tn Very small but visible very close up. Its almost like my lips are chapped. I used 1% hydrocortisone on my lips and that has made the bumps smaller but my tongue condition seems to be getting worse. What can it be? And who should I visit: doctor or dentist? Someone told me it could be an infection trying to get out of my body. Could that be true? Could it be a vitamin deficiency? What can it be related to? I'm an otherwise healthy 25 year old that eats right and exercises. Thanks for your help!!
Avatar m tn I had some permanent makeup removed from my lips and upper lip line using a removal method which involves tattooing over the area with an acid solution. The tattoo pigment is nearly gone but now I have some hypo pigmentation on my upper lip line. I am going to try the ginger root slices every night and let you all know if I see any results.
Avatar n tn very dark spots are not always a problem and are often normal d=diameter. if it is bigger than 2mm or a pencil eraser it should be checked. also sudden changes, itching, bleeding, texture changes, bleeding or swelling should be looked at. you can search the american academy of dermatology and search for tinea versicolor to get more information about what it sounds like you are describing.
Avatar n tn Red burning skin around my eyes. At times, eyelid and upper eye area swelling. Sometimes just very dark red skin around my eyes. I have gone to 2 internal med specialists, 2 opthamolagists and 1 dermatolagist. Been treated for blepharitis, seborrheic dermatitis, and allergies. Whenever I start another treatment I have a short period of relief. It always comes back...longest time without symptoms 10 days. Like eveyone else, I have thrown all makeup, lotions, and soaps away.
Avatar n tn Exercise, Extra sleep, Learn to manage stress, no alcohol, no smoking, a COMPLETE change in diet (Fresh, DARK leafy vegetables, brown rice, whole wheat products, a regular asian diet (No, not Panda Express), NO carbonated drinks. no margarine, no fried food etc... All the common sense things we too easily ignore if it is already a part of our lifestyle. By the way, I've always hated the way sodas would make me feel.
Avatar n tn Some years ago I was cleaning when all of a sudden I got a pain in my finger it was like a wasp sting when I looked I could see the blue vein which was going very dark and the pain was terrible after a little while it setted down.
Avatar n tn Around this same time, I also ran across an interesting article about how you can be allergic to your tooth paste (especially if it has stuff for tarter control and whitening, etc.) I was using Tom's of Maine toothpaste. I don't think this was the issue, but I'm not 100% sure (because I stopped several things at all once). So this is what I did: I stayed with my low sugar diet.
Avatar f tn I started getting some light to moderate bleeding (dark red) and cramping on the evening of the 25th and has been constant since then but apparently cramping and bleeding can be a side effect of prometrium suppositories. Just praying that the bleeding and cramping stops in the next day or two. Next beta is Sept 3rd so I'll be right there beside you in spirit getting blood drawn and hoping for baby.
