My lip color changed into pale white after jaw injury which happened 8 months ago. What should I do to gain normal color back?
Hi, All, I am 25 years old female. Eight months ago, I had a bike accident which broke my upper and lower jaw in fives places. I went through jaw surgery after which I was left with nerve damage on chin and lower lip. I still have numbness even after 8 months. For about fist 6 months, my lower lip has been constantly and easily dried even in the summer. And I also noticed that my lower lip color changed like discoloration because of heavy smoke. (I don't smoke at all). I tried variety of lip balms and moisturizer. It didn't help that much. I thought color will be back if I control my diet, wear lip balm and do exercise. I have done all of these as much as I can. It helped a little bit with lip drying. But, my lower lip color doesn't turn back to normal at all. Now, my lip is pale white like I am very sick if I don't wear lipstick heavily. My lip was pretty red normally before accident. Is that even possible to gain the normal color back? What should I do? Please help! Thank you so much!
