Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
The brown edges of labia minora are usually due to the pigmentation in that area.It can be the result of excessive sun tanning or due to some ointment used by you. Hormonal changes may also be responsible for the pigmentation. Usually it is irreversible.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available if you have any further queries.
