I do not think that the discolouration of the upper lip of your daughter is due to any hormonal imbalance. It is most probably due to the new skin growing underneath the damaged chapped skin of the upper lip. First you should strongly discourage your daughter from thumb or finger suckling and wait for a few weeks to see if the colour of her upper lip is returning to the normal. Also keep the lips moisturised using Vaselin or glycerin during night.
