Hi,

Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am glad to help you out. You seem to be suffering from what is called as labial melanotic macule. This is a benign lesion and is found more commonly in women and predominantly occurs on the lower lip. Usually, nothing is done for the same. However, if it is unsightly, one of the short wave lasers is used for the treatment of the macule. Please do consult a dermatologist for the same as it not possible to diagnose online.

I sincerely hope this medical information helps. Take care.
