Question: Lower lip discoloration. upper part of lower lip is slight pink in color almost matching the inside part of the lip color while the bottom part of the lower lip is normal. I have had this problem before but nw it is more worse and noticable. Is it because of vitamin deficiency or exposure to sun? How to over come this problem. Is it reversible. It is looking bad.
