dark spot on lip
I have 1 dark spot on my lip now that has not always been there.  It seemed to appear after my lips being really dry & cracked.  Now it is very noticable and is ugly.  What is it?  Can I get rid of it?  What should I do?

Hello,

I cannot confirm anything without examination,but it sounds like lentigo. It is a small, sharply circumscribed, pigmented macule surrounded by normal-appearing skin.
You cannot remove them at home.Cryosurgery using liquid nitrogen and laser are the main treatment modalities.Although there are many skin creams like hydroquinone and salicylic acid,but their use needs prescription .I would recommend a dermatologist’s consultation for this.

Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep us posted on how you are doing.
