Tiny blackspot on lips ?

Posted , 3 users are following.

A few days ago (4-5 days) I notice a small tiny black spot on my father lips there is no pain, no lumps or swelling . he doesn't use tobacco nor smokes and doesn't drink alcohol. Asked ones about that he said that it's a trauma because of his lips come into his teeth during eating. If it's trauma how much day it will take to heal ? And yes he is a sugar patient .

Thank you

    Does it look like a tooth has bit down on the spot. I could be from trauma. 

    Keep an eye on it. If a blood blister? It could resolve itself in a few days!

    Q

    hope he is better soon.

    It's been one week now but the spot haven't changed a bit. How much time it usually take to heal the trauma?

    I am sure you are right as your father has diabetes Saif. If the small blood blisters resolve that's fine, if they get bigger or ulcerate then he needs to see a doctor.

      If your father drinks sweet tea yes that will make the diabetes worse, I know how much people like very sweet tea, sugar makes diabetes worse. Is you father on medication for diabetes. Unfortunately people with diabetes don't heal as quickly especially if their diabetes isn't properly controlled. You should take your father to a doctor if he hasn't seen one recently. The blood blister is trauma from the overbite. It will go once the diabetes is controlled.
