Common Questions and Answers about Rash on face around mouth

rash

My son has a red slightly raised rash that appears and disapprears on his face, usually near the corners of his mouth. He has no food, or other, allergies that we know of. Any ideas?
My husband has red blotches around his mouth and on his chin. They don't look like zits (He has very clear skin)... we thought maybe rosacea, but they are small blotches. They aren't spreading like a rash and have been there off and on for almost a year. He doesn't have them anywhere else on his face. They almost look like razor burn bumps, but he says their not. Any suggestions???
At its worst, it was a red, oily, tight rash on my chin that extended around both sides of my mouth and then underneath my nose. It also itched, but not severely, and it had some small red blisters in it. One time I even woke up with swollen red lips that also had burning blisters around the edges along with split corners! At first I thought it was Perioral Dermatitis, so I put some apple cider vinegar (ACV) on it to dry it out because I had read online that ACV could cure it.
In the last week or so I have developed a rash thing that circles around my mouth. I'm not sure what it is and I would like anyone to post some help or maybe even some steps on how to get rid of it. I have never had a rash before so I would think it would be tempory. The rash itself doesnt hurt it just occasially stings. Any help please?
Hi, I have a history of acne, but this rash on my face is different and is strictly around my nose and mouth. Is it Perioral dermatitis? or could it be something else? and what should I do to treat this condition?
I have a darkening of the skin about one fourth to a half of an inch around my mouth, but only on the bottom. It is just sort of like a tanning of the skin, but only in the one sport around the bottom half of my mouth. There is no irritation of any kind from it, the only thing bad about it is that when I wash it, it gets very red, even on the chin. The people I have asked, I think jokingly have suggested Herpes, but I don't think thats it. Any suggestions on what it is.
See a doctor as it could be impetigo or staph infection. Both are highly contagious and require treatment.
Sometimes they become more pronounced ~ I don't know what the trigger is. After a few weeks, she developed a rash around her mouth (looks like sever chapped lips) and her cheeks (reddish spots, bumpy). We took her to the doctor and she got a cortisone shot, which seems to alleviate the symptoms to a degree (the spots on her arm never went away). A month later, the rash is back. She now also has reddness around her eyes which she says it painful (it looks like dry, taut skin).

I have had this rash on my face for some time. I'd say 18 months, to 2 years. Symptoms: I have this red rash (as seen in the picture) that sometimes peels, and on rare occasions itches. It often becomes sore if I wash it with any kind of soap. If I just leave it alone most of the skin appears smooth, but in the crease on the side of my nose dead skin flakes off. Peeling rarely happens anywhere else. It use to be just on the side, and end of my nose.

My son is 21 and has had a rash on face, around his mouth, for nearly a month now. It appeared the week after he suffered through a form of the coxsackie (sp?) virus. His ped said the rash was just an 'irritation' and unrelated to the other virus. She said to put Aquaphor on it a couple times a day and it would go away. Nope. Got worse. His allergist says it is not an allergic rash. He said it looked to him like contact dermititis and said to put hydrocortisone on it.

I've had a reoccurring rash that I get around my mouth. I had been putting betamethasone on it which would clear it up but then would come back within a week if I quit using cream.

Ive quit using all products and even towels on face to no avail.
About 7 months ago I started getting a small rash on my chin which I thought was a reaction to my makeup but it has just gotten larger and is spreading around my mouth and up by my nose. It is very red, dry and extremely itchy. I have tried fungal cream and I have tried lotions with no relief. I have not switched shampoos or soaps or laundry soaps. I hate that it is so red and itchy and I do not want to go out in public because it is embarrassing to me.

This time the bumps have become itchy and flaky. They are on my entire face, around my nose, under my eyebrows etc. However, they are not on my neck. What can I do to help alleviate this? With the numerous ingredients listed on face products now, is there any way to tell which ingredient may be causing this reaction so I can avoid it in the future? Thank you.
this is not acne, it's a rash i have had around my mouth and nose area dor about 22 years. i have not been able to find a doctor to diagnos it correctly. over the years it comes and goes and when it comes it's so miserable and gross. i can't stand it. it becomes an oozy, irritated nightmare. in the mornings it appears to be drying up and by the late afternoon it gets irritated, red, and very uncomfortable. it kind of has the appearance of poison ivy.
