Exam needed.: HSV is unlikely. The redness/itching/flaking is most consistent with seborrheic dermatitis (especially if scalp is also flaky), but that doesn't explain the chronic sore throat. Let your doctor examine you, and perhaps do a throat culture. ...Read more

Lotions and meds: Try aquaphor lotion. There are many other lotions over the counter that can help like johnson's creamy baby oil, cetaphil, arbonne's abc lotion, etc. Your baby may have eczema. See your primary care doc if it doesn't go away. There are some prescriptions as well. Good luck. ...Read more

Rosacea, dry skin: Given your age, numerous causes exist for the break-outs and dry scaley skin, including atopic dermatitis, roseaca, sebaceous dermatitis, psoriasis. With age, sebaceous glands produce less oil, contributing to driness, which further is exacerbated by stress, alcohol, dehydration, smoking, dry or cold weather. Treatments: topical anti-inflammatory or anti-histamine creams, moisturizers, hydration. ...Read more

The constituents of the infection can be identified and if the tooth in question possesses the same pathogens as the lump in the cheek, then one can confirm that the tooth infection is the etiologic cause for the the bump. ...Read more
