Depigmentation at the corner of lips for long time

I have little depigmentation at the corner of my lips. It has been two and a half years. A doc suggested Tacrolimus Ointment (Topgraf) which didn t help at all. I don t smoke or eat tobacco. What could it be? Age-21 Gender-Female

hi
if it is stable and donot increase in size then minor surgical procedure is the best option for u as it will give 100 % result
better to consult dermatologist
u r using right medicine but as u have told it is of no use
means u have resistant spot which need surgery .
