Illustration: Purulent Spots Between Lips And Nose? Bing

I have small pus-like spots like pimples that appear in groups at the same time in the folds of the lips (the middle part between the lips and nose) that feel sore and itchy. Before, I felt that the skin in this area was really sore, I thought because I just recovered from the flu so maybe the skin was irritated but it turned out to be round like this. what should i do? thanks

Hi Ana, thanks for your question


Based on the information you conveyed above, there are several possible causes of fluid-filled nodules that are clustered around the mouth area:


Herpes labialis/oral - a type of herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection, specifically type 1, which attacks the skin around the mouth area.
Including diseases that are easily transmitted through direct or indirect contact (intermediary eating utensils, lip balm, and so on). There is no specific treatment because it will be handled by the immune system. Even if you have recovered, there is the potential for recurrence in the future because this virus is dormant in the spinal cord
Impetigo - especially the crusty type of impetigo that often appears around the mouth area
Perioral dermatitis - eczema that appears around the mouth area
Singapore flu or foot-hand-mouth disease

Considering that there are various possible causes, each of which has its own treatment, it would be better if you directly determine the cause of your complaint to the doctor. In addition to direct examination, the doctor may recommend additional examinations, namely examination of fluid samples from existing wounds. After ascertaining the cause, the doctor will determine the best treatment for you.


While waiting for a doctor's examination, it is recommended for you:

avoid touching, pressing, or squeezing the fluid-filled nodule
avoid sharing eating utensils, make up, especially lip balm
avoid sexual intercourse for a while, including oral sex
to relieve fever or pain, you can take paracetamol

Hope it's useful
