Solodyn lip discoloration gum discoloration
My patient came in with a complaint of lip discoloration and gum discoloration. Her lip had many small black or dark brown areas of skin near the wet dry junction. They looked similar to sun spots. She also had a complaint of white gum tissue. It looked very similar to what we see with smokers. I have known this patient for years and she is not a smoker but I had to ask if she started smoking as the clinical presentation was so similar.
The lip discoloration is more apparent. It is the brownish black lesions all along wet dry border of lower lip. This is a caucasian patient with a dark tan.
