Blackness over the inside lip spreading to surrounding parts after eating salty food. What could be the cause?

I ate some salty foods the other day. Now the inside of my bottom lip is black and the color is spreading to the rest of my lip!!! Do you have have any idea what may have caused it or how I can get rid of the blackness? I drink water and exercise regularly, so I didn t think one salty meal would turn my lips black. I don t know if it could be from a lack of iron or what.
