Hello Rahma Diana, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
A reddish rash is a symptom on the skin that can trigger certain skin conditions. A reddish rash can develop symptoms of redness on the skin, sometimes accompanied by bumps or raised skin surfaces, it can also be accompanied by other symptoms such as itching and burning.
There are many possible causes of a red rash on the skin around the mouth (including:
Perioral dermatitis: is inflammation of the skin around the mouth. Contact dermatitis: is inflammation of the skin caused by contact with certain substances. Contact dermatitis can be caused by irritants (irritant contact dermatitis) or caused by allergies (allergic contact dermatitis) Rosacea: a skin disease that attacks the face, characterized by reddening of the skin, a dense or pus-filled rash can occur, and blood vessels become visible clear, especially on the nose, cheeks, chin, and forehead. Perioral dermatitis often causes symptoms of a reddish rash in the area around the mouth which can include the chin and upper lip, in addition to a pink rash it can also be accompanied by red rashes on the lips, nose and eyes. This condition is more common in children and also often occurs in young women. The possible causes that can trigger the emergence of perioral dermatitis are:
Use of creams containing steroids in areas that cause rashes Use of drugs containing other steroids such as inhalers Use of cosmetic creams, make-up and sunscreens Use of toothpaste containing fluoride Hygiene factors, rarely washing your face Hormonal changes for example the use of birth control pills. Therefore, it is necessary to pay attention to whether there are things mentioned above that trigger redness in the area around your lips. For example, if you suspect that the use of certain cosmetics causes a rash, you should stop using it, and consult a dermatologist if the complaint is bothersome and doesn't go away. or, for example, drugs that are suspected of being the cause, consult the doctor who gave the drug again. It is not recommended to stop using the drug without a doctor's advice.
Contact dermatitis can be caused by irritants and allergic substances. In irritant contact dermatitis, when there is direct contact between your skin and certain irritants (which include irritants such as shampoos, bleaches, soaps, detergents, wool powder, fertilizers, acids, machine oils, perfumes or preservatives) causes irritation of the skin giving rise to a small, light rash accompanied by pain or stinging on the affected skin area. However, if you avoid exposure and direct contact with the irritant that you suspect, usually the symptoms can gradually improve. Whereas in allergic contact dermatitis, it appears when your skin comes into contact with an allergen that triggers an allergic reaction, apart from the appearance of a rash, usually another dominant symptom is itching. Allergens that often trigger allergic skin reactions include drugs (such as antibiotic creams), airborne substances (such as pollen), plants, metals in jewelry, rubber), and cosmetic ingredients (such as nail polish and hair dye).
Therefore you need to check again, whether there is use of irritants or allergens before triggering a mild rash on you. If there is, you should immediately stop using it or its exposure.
Some of the possible skin problems above can cause a reddish rash on the skin, especially the face around the mouth such as on the chin. To know clearly the cause, of course, further clinical examination is needed, and may be done some additional tests such as allergy tests. Therefore, if the complaint does not improve, you should consult a skin specialist, so that it can be handled promptly.
