No STD: No STD is a likely cause of these symptoms. The only remote possibility might be syphilis, which can cause a wide variety of skin problems, which might on rare occasions affect the lips.

Piebaldism: born with a blonde (not white/gray) hair patch in the front of my head. Now lost color to a patch of forehead skin. Can it spread this way?

Mutations of either : the KIT gene on Chr. 4q12 or the SNA12 gene on Chr. 8q11,inherited in an Autosomal Dominant fashion, cause Piebaldism. I found 1 case report of ^ing hypopigmented skin patches, thought to be from instability of melanocytes, pigment-producing cells, caused by the specific mutation. Your dermatologist can check for more spots with & without a Woods lamp. See ghr.nlm.nih.gov/condition/piebaldism. ...Read more

Symptoms of black vomit could suggest bleeding in the stomach from a small ulcer, however small things can become big things rapidly and be very dangerous.

Arrhythmia? : You may be having a disturbance of your heart rhythm although most people describe the fluttering sensation as being in their chest, not their head. Next time it happens, try to take your pulse and determine its rate and whether the rhythm is regular or irregular? Either report the result here to your family doctor.

I got three dissolvable stitches in my upper lip two days ago. My 3 year old son just head butted me and one the stitches is loose. What do I do?

Head butt: Ok, take a look at the wound. Are the edges of skin touching each other? Is there a space large enough to slip a dime into? One loose stitch is no problem as long as the wound looks ok and you're not seeing a gap in the skin. If there is any question, we are happy to look at it in a Prime visit with photos! Sorry about the head butt! Those hurt! ...Read more
