View Full Version : sort of pimples, but not...

11-27-2009, 10:02 AM
i have tried googling my new condition and cant find anything like it. i am getting a goatee type thing of skin bumps, mostly hormonal i think as they are worse for a couple days each month. they start in the old age creases around my nose and continue on my chin. they are not pimples, but red bumps. they dry up and become dry red marks, they only last a couple of days, but the redness and dryness lasts longer.

i would like to know what i can use on them to help clear them up, or stop them altogether, but i dont know what they are. anyone come across anything like this? id love some advise. thx.

Have you searched Perioral Dermatitis? And Metrogel as a possible treatment?
Not sure if that's what it is, but it sounds like a possibility. Good Luck!

i think that may be it exactly! i didnt/dont know what it is, so i had a hard time searching for skin conditions or pimply things around mouth. i guess i will have to see my dr. afterall since the treatment meds require a script. thanks so much!

LOL it is actually a pic of someone with herpes. I just couldn't help myself when I read your description in your first post. I apologize.

No problem and good luck! It can be pretty stubborn. The Metrogel worked for me in time but I know a girl who had to go on some pretty harsh antibiotics for hers.
