Skin rashes around mouth

Common Questions and Answers about Skin rashes around mouth


Avatar m tn A year ago I developed a rash, similar to teenage zits under the right nostril, traveling down around the corner of my mouth and chin. My rash felt prickly hot and raw. Nothing I used helped, and it just got worse. After about two months, the rash cleared, but it left a patch of scaly skin that itched, but finally went away. Is this a new symptom? I emailed my doctor, she said to use an antibacterial soap, it did help. Any thoughts?
Avatar m tn It is usually characterized by an uncomfortable burning sensation around the mouth. Itching is not a common symptom.Treatment consists of oral antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs. A mild soap or soap substitute, such as Dove or Cetaphil should be used for washing. Scrubbing should be avoided. Wash the areas several times with fresh water. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites. You can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin.

Avatar f tn I realise that my eczema gets worse when i get my allergies, it starts with the skin around my mouth getting gradually itchy, sometimes with vesicle fomation on my lips, and the next day my eczema gets worse and my mouth would look darker than usual. Am on mild daily anti-histamines as prescribed by a dermatologist and am using a hydrocortisone cream for the eczema around my lips. I would like to know about the connection between my skin allergies and the eczema.

Avatar f tn I have flare ups of redness around my mouth down to my chin. Looks like a really bad sunburn. It itches somewhat but burns. No welts just red burning skin.
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 f tn Hi, I'm an 18 year old girl with very dark skin all around my mouth. I've had it for some time, and I went to the doctors regarding it already. I've used hydrocortisone already several times but it hasn't helped. If I put make up on it to conceal the darkness it burns, so I've stopped using make up. It looks horrible and my confidence is going down now, I just really want to get rid of it. Anyone know what could help?
Avatar f tn Hello, I am African American and have noticed lately that the skin around the corners of my mouth and the skin below my bottom lip is getting noticeable lighter. The skin is very smooth as if a layer of it has been removed. Sometimes it is a little itchy. The only thing I can think of that is on that part of my mouth is toothpaste. Could that be the problem or some other condition? Thanks so much in advance!
Avatar n tn Hi, I am a 19 yr old male. Several months ago, I noticed the corners of my mouth becoming dry and cracked. Almost at the same time I noticed a yeast infection on my genitals. Fast forward a couple of months, the dry cracked corners of my mouth seem to have spread downwards towards my chin and are larger and redder now. Also, there is redness that is slightly flaky on either side of my nose extending down to the top of my mouth.
Avatar m tn hi..... I have odd type skin rashes or swelling..... I live in cold county(canada). I get rashes only in the hands(from fingers to wrist only) that too only if go out only. Inside the house,I'm pretty normal. but once I go out(where the temperature will be in minus) I get rashes only in hands which is not covered, rest of my body will be covered with jackets and winter shoes. so which made me to think. whether this rash is because of the climatic change (this sounds really weird).
Avatar n tn And after a day the problem of her skin rashes just disappeared. So it all seems it was the new detergent that was causing the problem! Thanks a lot for the help.
Avatar m tn I have been getting skin rashes from my early childhood. These Rashes tend to come mostly during the Summer months of the year. They usually seem like a mosquito bite. They first occurs behind the ear, then around the neck, head scalp and spread to the back. Finally i get them even in my face. They are very itchy . They usually seem to have a cycle like 24 hours. They start by afternoon and get intense by evening and disappear while i sleep. The body gets heated up so much during that time.

Avatar n tn Hi. I have darker skin more like a shadow around my mouth. Overall I have clear skin. But during summer time, when I am around the sun I also get these white spots on my skin (along with the darker skin around my mouth). I also have darker knees and I am of south asian ethnicity. I have seen few other people of my background have it... is it genetic? Lack of nutrition? is there anything I can do to reduce the dark shadow?
