What causes black colored lips with peeling off?

Suddenly i realize that my lips wrinkled and tore with layers of skin peeling off. I then later noticed that my lower lip became discoloured. My once pink lips turned black and horrible. What is the problem as i usually drink loads of water naturally? I am scared and worried.

My Dear

Welcome to Healthcaremagic!

I have reviewed your posting and will share my experience based upon dealing with this problem in good number of cases.

It appears that you have some kind of allergy to some substance that was either in contact with the lips like lipstick or lip gloss or some article of food ingested by you. please try to recall and do not use that article again. In the meantime, avoid hot beverages, spicy food, very hot food items, apply some home made butter or milk cream and take anti allergic medication. There is good chance that you wont have to visit a doctor.

Best wishes
