Customer Question

my almost 3 year old girl has a bad habit of pilling up the dry skins of her lips every now and then but this morning she woke up with dark spots of blood on her lower part of the lips and the edge of her finger nails. I am concerned what that could be. Can you please help?

Hello, Sorry about this symptom. It appears there is drying of the area causing peeling and inadvertent injury during sleep, causing blood spot. Please use liberal greasing agent like vaseline over the lips several times daily also keeping her nails very short and well-filed.

We can have live call if you dial my no. +91 0285(###) ###-####

The injury must not be very painful as she did not wake up during night crying.
