Hi doctor,

From one month, I started to observe some rashes on the skin under my lips. I have been diagnosed before with dermatitis, but this is a different kind of rash. I have attached a picture of the rash. I have already tried applying moisturizing cream, Fisiogel, and Aciclovir. I thought it to be due to herpes, but these creams did not work. Please help.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have seen your query and examined your picture (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

  • It seems you have flat warts, and they are not herpes. These are not dangerous. However, they have a tendency to recur even after multiple removals.
  • The growth which occurred is filled with virus particles, so whenever you shave that area, these are going to get seeded at someplace else. I suggest you use hair trimmer instead of shaving, as blades can cause the spread of these warts.
  • Radiofrequency removal or CO2 laser (carbon dioxide laser) removal is effective if done thoroughly and multiple times. Meanwhile, I suggest taking Vitamin B complex and Zinc supplements, as these build up your immunity to fight these warts naturally.
  • There is no need to get scared, as recurrence is extremely common even in viral warts. They can come literally from anywhere. Hence, they are known to be very common. They seem to be common in men getting shaved in parlors. However, they can come from anywhere.

Thank you doctor,

Can you please suggest some cream also? I was using Benzac 10 %, which I used for acne. This cream tends to dry these warts.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • I suggest trying Tretinoin 0.05 % daily at night, but radiofrequency cautery or CO2 laser are good options in your case.
