hello, im dr satya
welcome to health care magic.
Your question regarding white eye lid hair and pink lips is quite understandable. White hairs and pink lips are sometimes hereditary and sometimes not. Inheritance is dependent on the dominance of the gene and transmission to son or daughter. Regarding whether it is a disease or not depends on the extent of involvement and nature of spread and time of onset. It may not be a serious disease if it is limited to only a few members of the family like father and daughter.
The choice is yours and weigh the pros and cons.
take care and fell free to contact.
thank you dr satya
