Question: Black Lips

 winai - Wed May 24, 2006 11:30 am

Hi Doctor,
I have a tanned skin color tone. Recently i noticed that my lips are becoming too dark (turning into black-brownish color from the lips- line). I don't smoke or drink. What should i do to make it pink/red?

Be sure to wear a product with the appropriate amount of sunscreen when outdoors. Hyper-pigmentation may result from over exposure to the sun. Have an evaluation to assure there are no underlying abnormalities.
