I have a small white scar on the lower lip, is it cancer?

Question: I have a small white scar on the lower lip for seven months. It was not white at first. But now it just stays there and does not show any change.I have uploaded the photo.

Best Answer: In my opinion this is nasolabial dyssebacia (photo removed to protect user identity). It is a type of eczema secondary to mild pityrosporum yeast infection associated with an oily part of the face with affected areas, symptoms are mild scaling and redness in some people. A common treatment involves using Cetaphil soap to wash face along with Lulifin cream (Luliconazole) once daily for 30 days. The application to affected areas is maintained even after the skin becomes normal for 30 days. This condition is often caused by stress and anxiety. Nothing serious, it is treatable.

  2. I used to get white scars too. These happened to me when I got nervous or stressed out on things too much. Now I try to control stress through yoga. It helps me alot and haven’t had any breakouts for a long time.
