What would cause your lips to turn dark gray and peel? It is not the whole lip. It’s mostly on bottom and mostly the edges and the corners. My lip looks half pink and half gray.I’ve been trying to figure it out for months. I took a food intolerance test and did eliminations but nothing has stopped it.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Addison disease should be ruled out first.
One month trial of multivitamins and minerals is needed if there is no evidence of Addison or skin allergy.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
