Hi, I'm really suffering with persistent pustules around my mouth and they are spreading to my chin.
JA: When did the pustules first appear? Have you used any medication for this?
Customer: Yes I consulted a private Derm and she prescribed Eumovate and Treclin gel - though I think the prolonged use of Eumovate has made it worse - in total this is at least 8 weeks since it started at the corner of my mouth
JA: Got it. Have you seen a dermatologist about the pustules?
Customer: Yes I sent photos and she advised it was perioral dermatitis and to use the eumovate for 5 -7 days but I am scared to use it again
JA: Thank you so much for your time. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history you think the Dermatologist should know?
Customer: I have taken Isotretinoin which cleared my acne but I still have hormonal outbreaks - this is the main part of my problem right now, I have had various reactions to products on my face so my skin is very sensitive.

but never had cold sores around my mouth

I have had new casual partners since this happened - oral sex

It is likely form HSV1, I would advise you to start acyclovir cream and get your swab test done.

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
i am now taking aciclovir tablets for outbreak of HSV2 is it the same or do I specifically need cream too?

Continue taking these.

But get repeat swab done anyways.

Would you kindly give 5 rating to this consult. It would be highly appreciated.
