Have white lines on lower lip, blood test shows not anemic. What is wrong?

Hi. I am 34 years old female and about 6 months ago I noticed that I have white lines on my lower lip (although it may have been there longer). Firstly I thought it was caused by my lip peeling habit and I started to use lip balm and also I stopped peeling my lip. However, the lines or patches are still there and are evident even from a distant. When I look at them very closely I see lots of little dots are accumulated together especially on the corners of my lip. I can also see them in the middle of my lip and one of them is slightly bigger and a bit raised. I have seen my GP and done blood test . Test result showed that I dont have anemia (the doctor said it was just little bit low but 0.5 so not significant). I have been searching on google to find out and it turns out there are few possibilities. And I am about to go mad. I am going to attach the picture of my lip, can you please tell me what is wrong with it? I look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards, N.

Your problem is known as Post inflammatory hyper pigmentation.You do not worry about the color change. It is is the normal sequel dark shade because of the activity of melanocytes(the color producing cells). You apply any lip balm with sunscreen factors on it for 2-3 times in day.
