Dermatology Questions? Ask an Online Dermatologist.
Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.
What color it usually take ?
Any other symptom ?
Any known medical problem or medicines you are using ?
How old are you ? male or female ?
Thanks for the information
There can be several reasons for such discoloration
Excessive use of tobacco, drinking hot beverages like coffee, biting the lips excessively, certain hormonal disorders, some allergic conditions, excess iron in the body,certain tooth paste brands,low B-12 levels etc .
The fat you do not have any other symptom means this is not something pathological. It can be due to dietary reasons or allergic condition. I would suggest that you do see the doctor for an evalution to make sure there is nothing wrong and you does not require any specific treatment
Feel free to ask if any more question
If done Please leave a POSITIVE (3 – 5 stars, preferably 5) rating by clicking on the stars above, until you do I am not compensated for my time. You can continue to ask follow-up questions even after the POSITIVE rating
Are you there ??
Any more question ?
I am sorry for this but I have mentioned you the possible causes which can give such symptoms . I can not examine you neither can I get any investigations so I was saying to have an examination . The fact that you have these symptoms for a long duration of time means it is not anything of concern but just to rule out other possible causes an examination is needed.
I am available to answer till you get the answer to your satisfaction
The limitation is that we can not examine people on this site so where ever an examination is required a visit to doctor is advised .In your case it can be a regular visit to your GP just to make sure there is no secondary reason for such discoloration which I feel is very unlikely
We are here to help you in the best possible way we can but as is said there are certain limitation like we can,t examine which is an essential part in medical problem solving so we can only guide.
I understand this is not the answer you were looking but this is the only right answer
