Acne around lips??

Hi I seem to be getting wierd acne-like pimples around my lips... tho I am not sure why.
The rest are small.. they seem to pop like acne but one is larger and unusually painful.
Looking up close they DONT look liek clusters (as with herpies (herpes)) just red areas like acne usualy looks like. One looked almost like a tiny blister tho that popped and had clear stuff come out.

Any ideas on what this is? note I have similar looking pimples all around my face n nose at random locations. Not sure why i am breaking out again.... just curious as to why I have 3-4 on outer edges of my lips including a largeee one tahts painful and annoying.

Thx

Btw heres a pic of my lower lip, the upper doesnt have the  redness outline (as shown with the green line)... only the lower but thats been there for along time.

The blue outlines the large blemish type thing I was talking about originally... is it acne?

Hi,

Perioral dermatitis, a condition related to acne vulgaris, consists of red papules that may appear microvesicular that typically affect the nasolabial folds, perioral area or perioccular area. It usually affects women between the ages of 20 and 45.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perioral_dermatitis

It is commonly caused by the use of fluorinated topical glucocorticoid steroids to this area.

It is treated in a similar manner to acne vulgaris with tetracycline antibiotics or erythromycin but, without the use of topical steroids.

Recently, photodynamic therapy (PDT) has been reported to be helpful, although large studies have not yet been performed.

Let us know if you need any other information.

Regards.
