Rash on face around mouth

Common Questions and Answers about Rash on face 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.
176741 tn?1295233989 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.
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 m tn 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.
Avatar f tn Hi. I have been experiencing this red rash above my upper lip (looks like a moustache). I have had it now for roughly 2 months with no sign of it going away any time soon. Prior to having it these two months I did have this rash once or twice before, I believe it was earlier this year or late last, but it lasted a much shorter length of time. It kind of looks like I just had my upper lip waxed. It is itchy and sometimes feels like a prickly feeling. It does not appear to be chapped.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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. Finally got insurance and was prescribed a po antibiotic and triamcinolone acetonide dental paste?? Even that seemed to help and antibiotics kept it gone for about 1-3 months but back. I'm 28. Ive quit using all products and even towels on face to no avail.
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar n tn My finger, hand, wrist, inner elbows, back of knee and on and around my mouth have all undergone recurring stages of itchy breakouts, drying out, peeling, then (sort of) healing, but not totally. It gets worse just before my period. I've had blood tests done that show nothing, been prescribed steroid creams and anti-fungal creams. A nutritionist told me that my system is out of pH balance and I have a vitamin defiency.
Avatar f tn Got this rash started out under my lip then slowly stared spreading around my mouth n on my lips.. n now is on my chin n cheeck. Its red n dry n itchy. Is there anything u can recommend over the counter ?!
Avatar m tn hi,i am 19 ,i have a problem of dark patches around my mouth ,i feel so sad about it, please suggest some tips....
Avatar n tn The doctor perscribed a cream for my daughter because she had a rash on her leg. I tried it on my face and the blisters and itching almost went away instantly. The cream is called Hydrozole witch is a broad spectrum anti-fungal and anti-flammatory cream. It contains 1% cortizone and 1% clotrimazole and you should only put a little bit onto the infected area. Once applied, it will almost dissapear instantly. After trying everything, this is the only cream that works.
Avatar n tn ve been experiencing rapid growth in some type of rash on my face, hands, and groin area. Three days ago the rash began on my hands as a few small bumps on the top of my right pinkie and ring fingers, as well as in the webbing between these two finger and the middle finger. The next day i began to notice redness and itching around my right eye and later my left.
Avatar f tn I had dry skin on my face for a couple of weeks and a pimple on my lip that excreted puss but the issue is my face was tingling for a while but no huge breakout yesterday I was kissing a friend I got redness around my mouth that went away after I washed my face please help do I have something serious
Avatar f tn s like very tiny, itchy bumps that focus on my cheeks, chin, around my mouth, and around my eyes with a red sort of rash. It makes my skin feel rough and textured when it's usually smooth. It comes out of nowhere, I just woke up with it yesterday morning and since then it has spread up my cheeks. When I saw it yesterday morning, I immediately washed my face with an exfoliater and cleanser like I do every day, and put on a face lotion.
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 See beside photo- I have had this rash appearing on my face for a few years now. It appears around my mouth, chin, and sometimes in patches on my cheeks. It is not rosacea. I have spent lots of money going to many dermatologists and they have no idea what it is. They/ I think it may flare up be my immune system when it's down, but are there any treatments I could use to help stop these random outbreaks? I use eczema cream, moisturizer, lip creams etc...
Avatar f tn During that time I was using Proactiv. The bumps appear only on the sides of my mouth; about 4 on the left side and 2 on the right side. I discontinued use of Proactiv since it didnt work and wash my face twice daily. I know they're not acne. They are clear bumps with no coloration at all and I'm unable to pop them like acne. I use no other products on my face. What are they and how can it be treated?
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 m tn I have this strange rash on the side of my face that starts at about the top of my cheek and ends at my chin. It appears like small, infrequent pimples but when I touch them they don't hurt and they don't have pus or go away. It's also very dry especially around my mouth on that side even though I've been exfoliating and moisturising heaps. It started at the start of the year on my chin and now it's all the way up to the top of my cheek near my hairline on my left side.
Avatar n tn Seborrheic dermatitis is a common skin condition that causes flaky, dry, white to yellowish scales to form on oily areas esp. under the nose or anywhere on face. Eczema is a form of chronic dermatitis (rash).Allergic reaction is one of the important causes of eczema. My sincere advice would be to consult a dermatologist and get it evaluated as treatment is diagnosis specific. I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
