I have two discoloured/whitish spots (about 4 mm diameter each) on my lower lip. I don't have white spots anywhere else on my body. A dermatologist has prescribed FLUTICASONE Ointment B.P. to be applied on the lip in the morning and TACROLIMUS Ointment 0.1% w/w (TACROZ FORTE) to be applied on the lip at night before bed time. Is it allright to use both the above ointments? Can I use those two ointments on my lip ? What are the precautions to be taken before taking food or drink, after applying the ointments on the lip, to avoid ingestion ? Is it necessary to protect the lip from the strong sun ? Is it necessary to apply TACROLIMUS Ointment 0.1% two times a day ?
Can Tacrolimus ointment 0.1% be applied on lip for treatment of discolored/whitish spots?

I too have a discolored spot (blackish on the lower lip.
I am also being advised by my dermatologist to use tacrolimus ointment 0.1%..
It is better to apply ointment after food and avoid any food after application of tacrolimus as advised by my doc for good results.
It is always good to avoid your lips from strong sun.The ointment can be applied twice a day i dont think there is a harm,,,
It is always better to ask your doctor for these knida questions..
