Spots On The Tip Of The Right Lip?
Hi, I want to ask, 2 days I have about 3 spots on the tip of my right lip, the color of the spots is like the color of the lips, but the surroundings are rather red. It feels itchy and hurts too but it’s not so annoying. I don’t feel fever or dizziness. Does this include herpes? Please answer.
Hello, good night Nisabunga ...
Previously we need to say that it is very difficult to diagnose a skin disorder without seeing and examining the skin condition directly. What you mentioned / describe about the appearance of your skin is subjective, so there is a concern that there will be differences in perception with what we understand.
If the negligence of the skin is only in the form of reddish spots or reddish spots (not prominent, flat with the skin), then this can be caused by several possibilities such as: allergic contact dermatitis, irritant contact dermatitis, or angular chelitis. Contact dermatitis is inflammation of the skin due to skin contact with substances that cause irritation or allergic reactions, for example deodorant or alcohol in toothpaste or mouthwash, substances found in facial creams used, and so on. While angular chelitis is inflammation of the corners of the mouth due to infection, where several risk factors include the habit of wetting the tip of the lips with saliva, friction with braces or dentures, and so on. If the skin disorder you experience is red bumps at the tip of the lips (in the absence of fluids), then this condition may be caused by folliculitis (inflammation of the hair follicles), angular chelitis (the above described), acne, and so on. Meanwhile, if the skin disorder that you experience is lumpy (pimple) filled with fluids), then the condition might be caused by: insect bites, contact dermatitis, herpes simplex, shingles, and so on.
We cannot be certain whether what you are experiencing is really herpes or not, because there are many other possibilities that we have mentioned above. Therefore, we recommend that you see yourself to a doctor (specifically a dermatologist), because as we have said, only by direct examination can your diagnosis be established.
While waiting for a doctor's schedule, avoid using any ointment / cream in the area of the affected skin without a doctor's prescription. Also avoid touching the area of the skin because it is feared that it will worsen the condition of skin disorders. Also increase the consumption of water and nutritious food to help reduce symptoms and help speed recovery.
That's all, hopefully it helps ..
