See your MD: Please visit your MD for a history and physical. Laxative use should be directed by a physician and stool softener a are safer to use. Ensure proper nutrition to stay healthy and give your body the ability to fight infection. MD will diagnose the sore on your chin and evaluate your conditions. Good luck.
