  1. Acne Around Mouth Area!

    ive suffered from this acne around my lips and mouth for 10 years never found a solution, spent thousands on different things, been on the regimen for 5 years took every antibiotic available. I get them right on the edge of the lip so they are impossible to treat, i have like 6 now they start off as a red mark get a little sore then form a whitehead and then im left with a red mark for months my mouth looks like a mess. I.dont use chapstick, i tried flouride free toothpaste, i tried every solution that you would see all over the net but cant stop getting them on the lipline. Used electric razors all different types spent hundreds and then switched to wet shaving and still the same. Start thinking it was staph or perioral dermatitis doctor says it isnt, i have acne on chest and back not too bad and not too bad on my face but around my mouth and lips is the problem area, im desprate for a solution.Ive an appointment for the derm in a few months so i took pictures of how it looks, doctor gave me doxy and skinoren which is azelaic acid ive never tried it so on that now a few days but it doesnt solve my problem i cant put treatment or creams on my lips because that area is sensitive and it just makes it worse. im quitting the regimen because bp has stopped working for me. Ive tried healthy diets no carbs or gluten to no avail and ive come to a conclusion that these spots are caused by stress/hormones and tiredness or when your immune system is run down at least for me anyway. Im constantly stressing about my skin i always have and wish i could turn the stress off. This acne is really embarassing because it looks like i have herpes so i avoid all social situations until they clear, i went 6 weeks without getting one on my lips not so long back and the past two weeks ive been getting them every day.
