Hello,

Dusty white lips are commonly indicative of anemia, little purple sores on legs represents the leukemia cells depositing in the skin. Leukemia may begin to filter into the layers of the skin, resulting in lesions (neoplastic leukocytes). You are suggested to get clinically examined by the a GP. Get blood analysis, imaging tests and other investigations done. If anemia or leukemia is detected, you will be treated accordingly.

Memory loss may be due to lack of appropriate sleep, sedentary lifestyle, depression, anxiety, stress that triggers forgetfulness. Alcoholism also triggers forgetfulness and memory loss. Stay away from addictions if any. Take adequate sleep, take healthy, balanced diet, stay active, mix up socially and stay mentally active. Take food that prevents memory loss, like turmeric, blue berries, dark chocolate, fatty fish etc. You can consult a nutritionist. Get clinically assessed and treated at the earliest.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
