How do i cure raw flaky skin on my upper lip?

Well on my upper lip not my lip but my upper lip i got raw flaky red skin i had it for about 7 months now,
I tried everything too heal it and it seems like nothing works?
Even topical gel,When i take a shower it gets dry real fast.
All i can do is use moisturizer too help it.
When my skin heals it cracks and falls off,
It does the same routine every time for the past 7 months.
I want it too heal real bad please help me!

I've went too the doctor and everything and it seems like nothing has worked,
I just wanna get rid of the this skin condition.

Hi,

It could be eczema. You need to wash the areas several times with fresh water. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites.

Apply calamine lotion at the site of the lesions and see if it helps. You could take some oral antihistamine medications like cetrizine or loratadine. You need to maintain a good personal hygiene . Use a medicated lip balm with sunscreen.

Anti-itch drugs, often antihistamine, may reduce the itch during a flare up of eczema, and the reduced scratching in turn reduces damage and irritation to the skin.

For mild-moderate eczema a weak steroid may be used (e.g. hydrocortisone or desonide), whilst more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid (e.g. clobetasol propionate, fluocinonide).

Eczema can be exacerbated by dryness of the skin. Moisturizing is one of the most important self-care treatments for sufferers of eczema. Keeping the affected area moistened can promote skin healing and relief of symptoms. Take a multi vitamin to make up for any deficiencies in your diet.

Maintain good personal hygiene and wear lose comfortable clothes preferably cotton.

It would be advisable to consult a skin specialist for your symptoms and a proper clinical examination.

Let us know if you need any other information and post us on how you are doing.

Regards.
