Hi, i am a 30 yr old female, who in july/10 noticed Extreme dryness of my lips. My lips started to peel and i noticed a month later i started losing color of my surrounding lip area. It tends to be quite dry. I notice when i am to lose more color my lips begin to strip. I keep them moisturized A LOT, day and night. I have resorted to cosmetics to "blend" away my lack o f color. It is quite noticeable as i am a woman of color (fair complexion). Been to a dermatologist who right away wanted to give me SHOTS of steroids in the area surrounding my lips. No thanks was my response. She had no idea what else to tell me and was not able to give me a reason for this abnormality. The dermatologist ruled out vitiligo. I consulted further with a homeopathic Dr. who suggested i use ginger on the area at question. I have been doing so for the passed week. I don't see a difference (not that i anticipate seeing a difference right away). I'm embarrassed as time goes by the area surrounding my lips gets whiter. What to do? No idea. I have another appt. w/h a Dr. at the end of this Mth. (10/10) If help is out there....let it be known ...PLEASE and THANKS in advance.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
