The Bottom Lip Is White.?

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified, such as white spots around your lips, does it look smooth, thickening, scaly, peeling, or what? Besides vaginal discharge, do you also feel pain, itching, burning? How big is the size of the vaginal discharge, is it widening over time? How long have these spots appeared around your lips?
Indeed, vaginal discharge may occur around the lips due to pigment disorders, as in the case of vitiligo or albinism. Vitiligo is a condition where melanocytes that are supposed to produce melanin pigments are actually destroyed by the body itself as a dangerous foreign body. Meanwhile, albinism occurs due to genetic abnormalities that regulate melanin formation. Both of these conditions can both cause the appearance of white patches on the skin that can spread almost to the whole body.
Not only pigment disorders, white patches around your lips may also arise due to other factors, such as post-inflammation hypopigmentation, fungal infections or other microorganisms, contact dermatitis, leprosy, psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis, lichen planus, and so on.
Without a direct examination, of course it is very difficult to distinguish the various possibilities above. Therefore, our advice, you consult yourself directly to a doctor or dermatologist so that your condition can be diagnosed and treated properly according to the cause. Some types of follow-up tests, such as biopsy, etc. may also be recommended by your doctor so that you can determine the best treatment for your complaint.
In the meantime, we recommend that you always keep yourself clean, including the face area and around your lips. Avoid giving haphazard ointments, creams, or any treatment to white patches that appear. Do not forget, be more diligent in using a moisturizer and sunscreen before activating so that your skin is protected from dry and irritated conditions.
Hope this helps ...
