Hi there, welcome to the forum. The clinical condition you are describing closely resemble Lichen planus. It is a mucocutaneous disease that affects the skin and the oral mucosa. The cause of lichen planus is not known. It is not contagious and does not involve any known pathogen. Some studies shown that allergic reactions to medications for high blood pressure, heart disease and arthritis may cause lichen planus. Some Lichen planus affects women more than men. The presence of cutaneous lesions is not constant and may wax and wane over time. But accurate diagnosis is made only on physical examination & subsequent investigations by a health professional. It is better to take consultation with a dermatologist. Hope this helps you. Take care.

Lip bruising can be due to trauma, injury while brushing or from dentures, coagulopathy, anticoagulant medications or bacterial infections.
