I constantly have a red/dry "mustache" on my upper lip. i use benzoyl peroxide and moisturizer daily for acne. what can i do to calm redness?

Benzoyl peroxide

Face_washing
can cause the constant redness so if you are using it on your upper lip try stopping. Also try shea butter. Consider seeing an acupuncturist as well to calm the extra heat in your system...steroids would help but do not like to use them on face.

I get one or two big pimples above my upper lip every few months. I do not have acne anywhere else. how can i prevent these?

Staph infection?

Acne
Some people get colonized with staphylococcus in the nose, and sometimes will have a small outbreak in the area under their nose, especially after colds. If you're having frequent "pimples" they may be small boils that resolve spontaneously. Getting a prescription ointment and putting a small amount in the front of the nose with a Q-tip can help eradicate this carrier state.

What causes acne on and around your lip area?

Perioral dermatitis

Pimples
You could be dealing with peri oral dermatitis. No one is sure what causes this but you get a rash around the mouth that sometimes has pimples. Over use of topical steroid creams is sometimes implicated. The usual treatment is an antibiotic, doxycycline. You'll have to see your primary doc or derm to get a definitive diagnosis and get treatment. Good luck!

Does saliva causes acne around your lips?

Perioral Dermatitis

Acne
Perioral dermatitis is a chronic papulopustular and eczematous facial dermatitis. It mostly occurs in women and children. The clinical and histologic features of the perioral dermatitis lesions resemble those of rosacea. Patients require systemic and/or topical treatment such as oral antibiotics, an evaluation of the underlying factors, and reassurance. Lip licking can also cause this condition.

Vagina acne on inner lips/opening. What to use on it?

Excision

Acne
If the sebaceous cysts are bothersome and cosmetically embarrassing you can have them easily removed in an office procedure using a pinpoint tip wire on an Ellman radio surgical device. I have removed up to 40 of these waxy cysts in a single half hour time frame. There are no mess or creams that work. They are not acne or pimples.
