rash around the mouth
My husband has red blotches around his mouth and on his chin.  They don't look like zits (He has very clear skin)... we thought maybe rosacea, but they are small blotches.  They aren't spreading like a rash and have been there off and on for almost a year.  He doesn't have them anywhere else on his face.  They almost look like razor burn bumps, but he says their not.  Any suggestions???

Rosacea usually occurs on the cheeks. Peri-oral dermatitis is a possibility, although this is more common in women. To rule out a shaving rash he should shave in luke warm water with a new razor each time, using a good quality shaving gel, like King of Shaves. As they come and go, they are most likely a reaction to something, and avoiding hot or spicy foods may help. As he has had them for a year he should go to the doctors for a diagnosis. He may be prescribed anti-biotics. Hydrocortizone cream may also help although this is not indicated for long term use on the face. Loiloi x
