Black lines by the sides of nose, upper lips get dark. How to get rid of this ?

Doctor, I have black lines by the sides of my nose . Also, my upper lips area gets dark very often. This has been for many years, and was first observed when I was a kid. It gets lightened temporarily with cleaning and scrubing, but develops again. Please tell what disease it is, or what nutrients I lack and how I can get rid of it. I am a 22 year old Indian girl. Thank you

hello dear,
it seems to be a developmental anamoly,(nevus)
as you mentioned it has been since childhood.

There cant be any nutritional defect lasting so long.
It can be treated by chemical peeling.

please meet a dermatologist and discuss about peels.
