Rash around mouth

Common Questions and Answers about Rash around mouth


Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar m tn I've had this horrible red rash around my mouth over a week now. It started as just a dry, flaky spot on the lower right side of my mouth but now I have it on both sides and it's itchy, flaky, dry, inflamed and red. There is no pus or anything like that. The corner on the left side of my mouth has a little "tear" because of the dryness. I've tried putting vaseline and other things on it but it doesn't seem to do much.
Avatar n tn My 2 1/2 year old daughter recently began to develop a rash around her mouth. It is concentrated from just under her bottom lip and down onto her chin. This rash does not seem to cause her any discomfort and does not itch. The funny thing is that the rash will appear, almost out of nowhere, last for a day or 2, then vanish! It may be gone for a few days or so, then it reappears just as quickly as it came! This rash first presented itself about 2 or 3 months ago...

Avatar n tn Im curious to find out what this rash is around my lips. I went out on the water on sunday and Monday it started. I started using Benadryl which has worked but im curious to find out what it is. Its red with little bumbs and the lines around my mouth are red. Does anyone have any idea on what this could be? I have an appointment scheduled with my dermatologist, but I would like a little insight about what it is. If you can help I would greatly appreciate it.
Avatar m tn //www.medhelp.org/posts/Dermatology/Itchy-rash-around-corner-of-mouth/show/975000 I am experiencing a red, itchy, flakey rash on the side of my mouth near the corners. It hurts when I try to open my mouth, and when I scratched earlier it started to bleed a little bit. The rash on each side is the size of a dime. What is it? Could this be oral herpes or something else? I have been test for herpes blood test and came back negative? Thanks for you help!
Avatar m tn Hi, my daughter recently started showing a rash around her lips...shortly after returning to preschool following the winter break. I'm worried it could be something or someone she is in contact with at school. This happened a few months ago and it went away but, at first, looked like she drank a cup of fruit punch and forgot to wipe her mouth. I'd be interested if anyone has seen similar rashes and found out the cause.
Avatar n tn Every few months at times when I get stressed, I notice red marks that appear around my mouth. They do not look like sores, only red spots on the skin about 1/2 inch or less from the lips. They are about less than 1/2 the size of a dime in diameter. They are usually there for a few hours and then disappear only to reappear in a different spot later. They feel slightly itchy and hot. They will appear in different areas around the mouth and the episode lasts for about 3 days.
Avatar f tn My son since birth gets a continuous rash around his mouth I use Trimovate cream but has to be carefully used. If I apply to much the rash worsens, If i dont apply any the rash spreads to his nose and eye lids. The Doctor said it was Dermititus and I have used many creams cortizone based. Could it be an allergy to food? Is there anything I can do to get rid of the rash once and for all? Please help!
Avatar m tn i get a dark brown or bright red area around my mouth. it is quite obvious and goes from the bottom of my mouth to about halfway down my chin it goes round in cycles.
Avatar f tn The doctor recommended a zinc supplement and pure sunflower, safflower or vegetable oil around his mouth. Only just started but there is already some improvement. Also recommended avoiding cortizone (gladly!!) and products with parabens. Hope this helps anyone else who's child is suffering from this awful redness around the mouth!
Avatar m tn Hi, I am a 25-year old male. Two days ago when I woke up in the morning, I noticed a couple of bumps on my upper lip, one on the left side the other on the right. They started pretty small with a dry, crusted top. I didn't pay much attention to it and I thought it was because of the mango I had the night before. Then more rash appeared on both top and bottom lips and around my mouth. It's itchy and they all have dry, crusted surfaces and some have clear, yellow-ish discharge.
Avatar f tn 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?
Avatar f tn Stop putting anything medicated on it. When you brush your teeth does the paste drip around the outside of your mouth? Don't do this. Also, do you drink hot beverages? I had a similar rash around my mouth mostly near my chin area and saw a derm. they said it was from coffee and letting toothpaste get on my chin while brushing. I brush with hot water and this was irritating my skin mixed with the toothpaste.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with epstiens Barr 2 yrs ago, and last month I had a flare up, it started with a rash around my mouth & sore tongue, then it went into a high fever, then I had the crashing tiredness, I'm 53 in June, I thought I had acold at 1st, but then something seemed off, so I googled it and it all came up, all the flare up symptoms. So I was surprized to see that I was having a flare up. Ithe rash briefly left but it's back and don't how to get rid of it.
Avatar f tn My 13 month old son has a rash on his hands, feet, & legs, I tried to look in his mouth and didn't see anything, but couldn't keep his mouth open long.. He also has some mild redness on his butt & has not been eating well. There is nothing on his stomach or neck and only a few little red spots around his mouth.
Avatar f tn My son is 5 years old and he has had an on again/off again rash around his mouth. It seemed to start from chapped lips and he keeps licking and biting his mouth because it itches. When this flares up it sometimes gets on the sides of his mouth also. The rash is red, no bumps or lesions. I am concerned that this will scar, it hasn't completely gone away for a few months. Any ideas?
Avatar n tn How did the rash form around your mouth? Did it form in clusters? Did it form to the sides of the mouth, or on the lower chin? Did any of the rash have heads or were they flat to the skin? Lastly, do they itch or just hurt?
