The Treatment Of The Wound Above The Lip Appears Suddenly?
Last Saturday I felt that the skin on my left lip was hot when I touched it at first I didn’t see anything then at night it looked like a small brown wound, then 2 days later the wound got bigger, the wound in the middle was brown and surrounded by white if it was touched it felt hot. Can you explain what disease is and how to treat it? R n r nThank you
Hi Muhamad Randi,
The cause of the appearance of sores on the skin above the lips, as you have experienced, basically there are several possibilities such as:
Herpes simplex (HSV virus infection) Perioral dermatitis (inflammation of the skin around the lips) Irritation or allergic reactions due to the use of certain products (eg soap, toothpaste, shaving cream, cosmetics) Other bacterial or viral infections
It will be very difficult to determine the cause of the complaint you are experiencing without going through direct examination. Therefore you should see a skin specialist so that you can be examined directly / face to face. The doctor will trace the cause through physical examination and supporting tests (if needed), so that the right treatment can be given to you according to the basic condition.
In the meantime, here are suggestions that you can do:
Maintain skin hygiene Use gentle facial soap Avoid using products that can irritate the skin Do not touch the wound area with dirty hands Avoid skin contact with other people (for example kissing) as long as the complaint has not been resolved
Hopefully this is useful,
