My daughter have extremly dry, cracked and pale lips what could be the problem?

My daughter have extremly dry, cracked and pale lips what could be the problem?

Weather?: This time of the year, the wind and cold have a tendency to really take its toll on the lips. When we lick our lips and go out into the cold weather, the wind and temperature have a drying and chapping effect on the lips. It is best to wear lip balm, if it has a uv blocking agent in it that's even better, since the bright sunlight can create a sunburn on those sunny winter days. ...Read more

Yesterday, I injected a B12 into my butt by myself, After injection, I felt a bit pale lips. It lasted 3 min and drinking some water got it better. Why?

Maybe Pain?: Pallor sounds more like a symptom of presyncope or almost passing out. Drinking and sitting down likely helped. Your symptoms do not sound like an allergy reaction which would cause hives and potentially breathing problems. All the best. Giving yourself an injection is brave. ...Read more

What causes: profuse sweating of only the head and face, pallor, of only the head and face, associated with extreme pressure in the head? Treatment?

Any kind of obstruction to the outflow of blood from head, neck and arms can cause these symptoms- but these conditions are pretty rare.

Intertrigo: pale pink line. Used Econazole 7 days still there. Not fungal this time? Should I return to simple treatment? Panty line area.

May be partly: Fungal. It is not clear. I would try a combination agent that has some steroid and antifungal. You can pick it up over the counter. Get your local pharmacist to recommend the generic brand he sells that will be inexpensive. ...Read more

Why is my vaginal discharge pale green? Should I go to a doctor? Or can I get treatment at a store?

Why is my vaginal discharge pale green? Should I go to a doctor? Or can I get treatment at a store?

Yes and no: Green discharge, per se, doesn't always mean an infection, but it's best to be tested, especially at age 18. The only over the counter treatment is for yeast, which doesn't typically turn one's discharge green. If you're sexually active, definitely see a physician or nurse practioner to get some labs done. ...Read more

Is there a laser skin lightening treatment available in the US that can make brown skin into pale skin throughout the whole body? What is it called?

Is there a laser skin lightening treatment available in the US that can make brown skin into pale skin throughout the whole body? What is it called?

No: Browner color is fine, peachier color is fine, and everyone else's color is fine. We do not have a laser booth for darker people to hop into, turn on a few buttons, and hop out a hour later with a lighter shade of skin. You can do the opposite and get a total body spray tan... but it's hard to make that look natural. Also, why the desire for a different color? Is it for fun, as in using make-up? ...Read more

Top lip looks pale, while bottom lip is vibrant and red. What could this be?

Lips: Have you always noticed the differentiation in lip color? I'm guessing this is most likely a natural pigmentation and vascularity of both lips. If it is just a recent differentiation, give it a small amount of time, as long as there are no other symptoms, and if no change, see your M.D. ...Read more

What does it mean for your lips to turn pale and almost white. I tested for anemia and it turned out negative?

No obvious reason: This is not a very common symptom so I don't have a good explanation. Perhaps a colleague has one? It could be a variant of "Raynaud's Phenomenon" which generally effects the hands and feet. Standard treatments for Raynaud's could be tried. I expect a good acupuncturist would help you and short of other explanations you might even consider going to Alanon meetings 3X to just see. ...Read more
