Hello doctor,

I have a problem with my mouth area. How can I treat it? Can you suggest some medicines?



Welcome to icliniq.com.

As per the history and image provided, it appears as allergic dermatitis, which appears as small bumps of skin which may or may not appear inflamed, and presents with discomfort, itching, and sometimes pain. They appear due to multiple factors, including contact with an allergen in the form of pollutants, allergic food intake, excess sebum secretion, and folliculitis appearing near the facial hair area, which are mild infections that, when fade off, occur in the form on bumps, and also appears due to razor allergies.

I suggest you consult a specialist and take the medications mentioned below with their consent.

1. AHA glow face wash (Vitamin E, Aloe Vera, and Glycolic acid) to be used twice daily for cleaning the area. Apply, massage in gentle circular motions, and wash off within one minute

2. Hydrocortisone cream 1% to be applied in a very, very thin layer with the smallest quantity possible on the affected area at night only for seven days.

3. In case of pain or tenderness on touch, Clindamycin gel alone may be used on the affected area once daily in the morning.

In case of severe dryness, Dermadew aloe cream (Aloe vera Gel, anhydrous Lanolin, Stearic acid, Propylene glycol, Triethanolamine, Dimethicone Fluid, Methylparaben, Propyl Paraben, Disodium EDTA) in a very small amount may be used on the affected area to relieve the dryness and irritation.

4. Cold compresses may also be applied to the affected area twice daily for a soothing effect.

5. Ascorbic acid 500 mg chewable tablet once daily after food at night for one month helps with faster healing.

6. Capsule Evion 400 (Vitamin E) may be used in the morning after food for one month. They help with keeping skin hydrated.

7. Capsule omega 3 once daily after food at night for one month. They help with skin hydration along with Evion 400.

8. Avoid oily or fried food, dairy products, and sweets. And make sure to consume more fruits, vegetables, and at least 12 glasses of water daily.

9. Tab Levozet M (Levocetirizine and Montelukast) once daily at night before going to sleep for 5 days.

10. Make sure to change the razor and clean them well before use. Also, ensure to wash the area to be shaved or trimmed well with face wash and soon after shaving to prevent the formation of lesions.
