I have a dark skin around my nose and lips.....wat do i do to remove these spots?

Dark spots are only at the sides of my nose and sides of the lips....it looks so awkward.

Infact the colour of my lips is also black.

I dont smoke @ all and dont know the reason why it is such way?

See a dermatologist and find out if laser or another new technique would do the trick (and if your skin type and situation are candidates).  There are also lightening creams - ask about those as well.

Hi, I have the exact same thing. I think it is a form of dermatitis and cortisteroid creams sometimes help but you can see a dermatologist for better advice.
