What causes cysts around the mouth?

6 posts in this topic

I literally have 4 cysts all around my mouth, 2 on my upper lip, 1 to the side of my mouth, and 1 below my bottom lip.

It started out with the bottom one first on Thursday, then the two on my upper by evening, then the one on the side came yesterday. All of them have come to head already because my cysts usually don't last too long since I use some prescribed sulfur.

But what is the cause of this? Did it somehow spread? I google'd it and all I could find is stuff mainly directed towards women but I'm an 18 year old male :think:


Started regimen on October 5th 2008. Here's a short timeline...

*Start-Dec 2008: Recovering from past acne, face looked better than ever.

*Jan 2009-May 2010: First week of January 2009 started off bad, cystic acne, then all of a sudden I cleared like no other and had the best skin of my life.

*June 2010-April 2011: Worst break outs of my life, acne in places I've never had 'em, cystic, new pimples every day, suddenly happened during summer break. Took me until December to realize Dan's new moisturizer wasn't moisturizing enough, it took this long because I constantly convinced myself Dan's products were the best /facepalm

*May 2011-now: In a somewhat state of recovery...

*November 2011-...

Sometimes cysts around the mouth area can be caused by irritants in your toothpaste. Flouride sensitivity, or irritation from ingredients like sodium lauryl sulfate or flavoring ingredients like cinnamon, mint can all be culprits.

You might try switching to something that is free of some/all of these ingredients and see if it helps.

Any suggestions on toothpaste? I have a feeling the ones at grocery stores will have all those ingredients no matter what.

Hey I realized today that I don't think the toothpaste causes me acne because I don't let the toothpaste bubble up past my lips, like I'm being serious it doesn't touch any portion of my skin.

Can dry skin cause cysts around the mouth? I've been flaking really bad cause of winter lately and I am one that laughs and smiles a lot throughout the day, so I'm thinking there is some friction irritating my skin?

Or possibly hormonal imbalance since I'm 18?
