Chin Rash

I have a rash in my chin that doesn't itch but it is located in both sizes of the lips corners and extended to the bottom of the chin.  It is red, my skin is extremely dry and craked on that side while the rest of my face skin is ok.  What it could be?

It can be perioral dermatitis. Perioral dermatitis is a chronic papulopustular and eczematous facial dermatitis.Treatment consists of oral antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs. A mild soap or soap substitute, such as Dove or Cetaphil should be used for washing. Scrubbing should be avoided.

If the symptoms are not controlled by topical antibiotics,then oral antibiotics may be needed.Pls consult your dermatologist and discuss this with them.

Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries.Warm regards.
