I have discoloration around my mouth and sides of my face, I had it for a long time. What is the best treatment to get rid of it?

Depends on cause: Depends on what the discoloration means. Some medicines can cause skin changes. For some people, darker or lighter skin in certain areas is normal.

Lipstick isn't designed usually to rehydrate lips, so stick with stuff that is. One of the more effective is vaseline. You just have to keep reapplying it. Try chapstick, blistex or carmex. There are others, too. ...Read more

See your oral surgeon while it is swollen. ...Read more
