Head trauma due to fight, insides of ears purple, bruised. When I lay down, feels like my head I'd spinning. Should I be worried?

Heads up!: Head trauma can be tricky. Things ER doctors worry about are loss of consciousness, bleeding, confusion or neurological issues. If you have been hit in the head and the inside of the ears are purple, you may actually have a skull fracture. There are many other things your doctor can look for that may indicate fractures/bleeding and given the symptoms you have, I'd get it checked out. ...Read more

I woke up Sunday with a purple spot on my bottom lip. It's been there many years but it's never blown up and not shrunk back down.?

Sound like a blood: Blister, a swollen vein. Perhaps from biting at the smaller bump that is always there. Warn compresses and it should resolve again but see your doctor immediately (or the ER) if this turns into an expanding blood pocket down the face or neck. ...Read more

I Don't know if I ate something or even had an alegic reation to spicy food but my bottom lip burns when I eat now even change to purple. Pls help?

Sore on lip: If your bottom lip burns whenever you eat, it is likely that you have a sore or an erosion of the surface of that lip. It will heal up. Try to keep spicy and salty foods away from that part of your lip in the mean time. Lip balm that you can get at a drug store should help. ...Read more

What does it mean if you bottom lip is swollen and it starts turning purple? Its been happen since friday and still going now iv'e been waking up with a swollen for almost a week now..

Did: Did you suffer any trauma to your lip? If so you likely have a hematoma (collection of blood) under the lip. This will take time to dissipate. You can try cool compresses/ice to your lip a few times a day and try an anti-inflammatory medication like advil (ibuprofen) to reduce the pain and inflammation. If you do not notice an improvement over the next several days see your doctor.
All the best. ...Read more

Small bumps appeared and then disappeared. My lips burned, then the inside of my lips were turning purple. Now my lips seem to be discolored. Explain?

Lips burning: Have allergies? Did it occur after you ate something? Shellfish? May be allergic reaction, or autoimmune response or herpetic lesion- but that stays for a week. Would carry a benedryl on you (if not allergic to benedryl) in case it reccurs, for herpes can take lysine 500 mg 3 tabs a day. X 1 wek then 1 tab a day x 1 month.

My dad's bottom lip is purple, just half of it in the left hand side, he is 67. He was out in the cold earlier but it's still purple, what is it?

If he's a smoker he should stop. When he's going to out in the cold he should apply lip balm and cover the are with a scarf, turtle, or other winter gear. ...Read more

Can lack of oxygen cause only top lip to become purple or would bottom be purple too. Sometimes the upper lip looks purple but the lower is pink.

Can lack of oxygen cause only top lip to become purple or would bottom be purple too. Sometimes the upper lip looks purple but the lower is pink.

Unlikely: If you smoke cigarettes and have less oxygen consider a smoking cessation program. Your doctor can help you with this. She can also get a spirometry to check your lungs. If you just noticed an upper purple lip and you are not a smoker it could be from eating ice or drinking a cold drink. ...Read more

A small purple wart like bump has appeared inside lip in front of mouth and my tongue keeps touching it. It is hard and painless. What should I do?

Check it out: Random bumps are always a concern for the doctor. Generally speaking, it's probably nothing but you want to be sure as abnormalities can present as symptoms to worse scenarios. It's possible that its related to the trauma during surgery or postoperatively if you bit your lip. Usually time and not messing with it will help it go away. ...Read more
