I have what appears to be faded mustache look over my lips

Customer Question

I have what appears to be white faded mustache look over my lips and no matter how much make up or tanning products it comes through. All I can ever find is fixing dark shadows At first I thought it was from threading hair or waxing but I don't think it is. I can't fix it. Help

can you upload a clear jpg photo of this white area above your lip?

it could be due to tinea versicolor which can be a mild skin fungal infection which can cause skin pigment changes in the skin and make skin look lighter or cause white spots.
