What Does It Mean If A Newborn Lips Are Purple Or Blue
Many possibilities: A purple color can be from trauma (ie a bruise). It can be a hematoma (a collection of clotted blood under the skin) or be related to a skin condition such as melanoma. Fortunately melanoma in this area is quite rare. There are other causes but you would need to get an exam to know what it is for sure. See a doc if it isn't going away on its own.

My lips become black, dark purple-blue; accompanied by stomach pain.. Does it have anything to do with my long periods of not eating?
The lips are a: "red herring" i would say. Ibuprofin not good if having stomach pain, meet to try something for stomach acid like tagament or zantac.

Try tylenol, (acetaminophen) get on acid reducer, Prilosec otc if can afford. Gd luc. ...Read more
