Suggest treatment for black spot on lower lip

I've had this little black colored spot on my putter lower lip, it's not a bump just a change in color from the rest of my lip. It's been there for a while but hasn't grown or anything. I was wondering what this was and how I could fix it. I would appreciate your help it's really embarrassing.

Hi..
Welcome to HEALTHCARE MAGIC..

I have gone through your query and can understand your concerns..

As per your complain a small pigmented spot on lower lip can be an area of hyperpigmentation and it can be due to excessive production of Melanin pigments by Melanocytes that are pigment producing cells..
I would suggest you to start apply depigmenting creams containing Kojic acid, glycolic acid and arbutin..
You can also apply Vitamin E gel..
You can also exfoliate your lips twice a week using a mild scrub..
You can also make a natural easy scrub by sprinkling salt on half a lemon and rubbing on lips..
You should also prevent sun exposure and apply SPF 15 containing lipbalm..
You can also apply honey over lips..
In case of no resolution in 2 week consult a Dermatologist and get evaluated..

Hope this information helps..

Thanks and regards.
