Does Your Child Have Pink Lips?

The cause of pink lipstick is unknown. Some say it is due to the presence of estrogen in your body during puberty or menopause. Other experts believe that it may be caused by some sort of chemical reaction between the pigment cells and the blood vessels in your skin.

There are many theories about how pink lipstick is formed. One theory suggests that the pigment cells in your lips change color when they absorb certain chemicals such as cholesterol from your diet. Another theory says that there may be a genetic factor involved in forming pink lips. There have been studies done on this subject.

Researchers found out that the pigmentation of the skin changes with age and the amount of time spent in sunlight increases its saturation level (the degree to which it absorbs ultraviolet rays).

There are many ways to get rid of pink lips. You might want to try a lip balm that contains a high percentage of sun protection factor (SPF). You can also apply petroleum jelly to reduce the amount of moisture in your lips so they won’t be as likely to form inflammation, which is one cause of red or pink lips. Applying a mixture of one part lemon juice and two parts milk is also said to do the trick.

My daughter has red lips. She is only two years old. The doctor says this is common and that it will disappear with age. I wonder if this could be a sign of something more serious.

Does your child have red or pink lips? Is one lip lighter than the other? Do you notice any swelling around the mouth or chin area?

These may be signs of an illness called thrush, also known as white mouth. It is a fungal infection in the mouth. It can be treated with medication and dietary changes. The biggest risk factor for this condition is having a low number of white blood cells, which is known as leukemia. Other factors that may increase your child’s risk include antibiotic use, exposure to organ transplant, HIV infection or taking other medications that suppress the immune system.

Another possibility is that your daughter has a cold sore, also known as fever blister. It is a small fluid-filled blister that tends to recur in the same place. It is caused by the herpes simplex virus, which is also the virus that causes genital herpes. A cold sore or fever blister is most often triggered by extreme fatigue, poor diet, menstruation or emotional stress.

The best way to treat a fever blister is by applying an over-the-counter medication such as Zovirax (acyclovir) or Abreva (docosanol).

Other things that can cause a child’s lips to become red include eating beets, sucking on a penny or eating berries.

My wife has purple lips. She is only twenty-eight years old and eats a well-balanced diet. I have never seen her smoke.

According to what you have learned so far in this e-book, what might cause her condition?

The most common causes of purple lips are smoking, medication and poor diet. It is possible that your wife has been exposed to toxic substances such as lead, mercury or even arsenic. This may have happened at work or even at a local nail salon. Arsenic was once used as treatment for various skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.

Another possibility is that your wife has taken the drug known as amiodarone (Cordarone). It is commonly used to treat an irregular heartbeat. The side effects of this medication include nausea, vomiting, shortness of breath and loss of vision. It may even cause purple or blue spots on the skin.

It is also possible that your wife has Addison’s disease, which is a rare malfunction of the adrenal glands.
