I have one small brown spot right now on my lower lip which came out a month ago. I don't know how or why it just came out. I'm a 33-yr old female. I don't smoke and I know I drink lots of water daily. It is not painful or uncomfortable but it just bothers me as it wasn't there before. How can I get rid of this?
I am taking medication that causes dry mouth (Asacol) but in addition to the dryness, I have a dark almost chapped blotch on my top lip that will not go away...I am CONSTANTLY drinking water AND applying medicated lip balm/petroleum jelly to it...
Is there anything short of going to the doctor that I need to be doing/considering?
