Question
Hello, I have a sore mouth since more than two months now. Went to the doctor, got antifungal mouth wash but it did not go. now i am noticing my upper lip is changing color. I got mouth peeling too some days back. and i still feel the soreness. When I first went to the clinic, I was told it could be a viral infection that would go by itself or allergy. I used to wake up with swollen lips at that time, not anymore. What would you advise me?

I have allergies to nuts, seafoods etc...as well as metrogil. But I am not getting any hive on lips anymore. The whitening is not vitiligo i hope? And it's been going for quite long now.

I don't have a dry mouth as such. And I don't observe these after eating particular foods.

Brief Answer:
Looks like skin condition.

Detailed Answer:
Hi..
I have viewed the image and it looks like skin problem..
You should consult a Dermatologist and get evaluated..
Hypopigmentation can be due a number of causes so first of all exact cause should be ruled out..

Hope this helps..
