Hello Hangpi thanks for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Some causes of the occurrence of black color in the lip area among others:
As a result of smoking Injury or injury to the lip area Addison's disease Hormonal changes Irritation or inflammation of the lip area Allergy to smoking can cause discoloration of the lips to blackish, this occurs due to exposure to chemicals such as nicotine and tar in the long term that causes blood vessels to narrow so that the body's tissues can't get oxygen or nutrients properly. Reduced oxygen intake and exposure to tar or nicotine can cause a buildup of melanin pigment (skin pigment) unevenly on the lips and gums that will result in blackening of the lips and gums.
Previously you are advised to continue to consult with a dermatologist, because the doctor requires a physical examination directly or other supporting examinations in order to determine the exact cause of your complaint.
If it is indeed the cause of the blackish lips due to smoking then it is rather difficult to restore the color of the lips to the way they were before, but some treatments or actions can be done by a dermatologist to help your complaints such as laser therapy or other treatments.
