Customer:

sent again to above this time.

dermdoc19 :

Good.

dermdoc19 :

I finally received the picture. This appears to be an allergic contact dermatitis. I would recommend oral steroids at a small dosage, say 10mg. a day as long as you do not have a history of an ulcer or diabetes. In addition, I would apply Hydrocortisone ointment 1% on the lip area. This may be due to a food, so see if any particular food aggravates it. Obviously avoid lip stick or lip balms.

dermdoc19 :

I would be happy to answer further questions...By the way, the rash can spread beyond just the lips. This is something called an id reaction in which an acute rash in one area can cause a generalized breaking out.

Customer:

Thankyou for your diagnosis.

Customer:

I will apply all as i agree with your diagnosis. i was told it was fungal and treating it this way which was making it much worse. Yes i broke out on my scalp,eyebrow and face. Sorry for the delay but i thank you for your responce and will use just answer again but not soon i hope.

dermdoc19 :

You are welcome. Let me know what happens.
