My 13 month old has very dry red flaky skin around his mouth and nose. I have tried baby oil baby lotion. But nothing helps. What do I do?

Lotions and meds

Lips
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

My face breaks out around my nose and mouth with what looks like circles of dry scaley skin what could this be?

Rosacea, dry skin

Nose
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

My skin on the face became very dry especially around the nose and mouth. It burns wen I apply any cream. Why s this and which specialist should I visit?

Perioral Dermatitis

Skin
Certain medical conditions, such as perioral dermatitis and contact dermatitis, can affect the skin around your nose, mouth and eyes. This type of dermatitis primarily affects adult women as men rarely develop this condition. The exact cause is not quite understood but is believed to be related to poor hygiene, certain facial creams and topical creams and ointments. You may need oral antibiotics.

You are probably over exfoliating Eliminate the exfoliator for now. if it doesn't go away in two weeks see your Dermatologist. It could have some component of seborrheic dermatitis.

Why would it be that my eyes, nose, and mouth are dry everyday I wake up?

Srogren's ?

Head-eye
This can be a connective tissue related disease called Sjrogrens if it is severe. If it truly gets better as the days goes on, may be just dry in your bedroom. try running a cool mist humidifier in the room and do not use a celing fan.

How come I get acne around my nose and mouth?

Dental Cleaning

Have you had your teeth cleaned? The oral bacteria in the mouth are the same bacteria that can cause acne.

I have had an eating disorder for 28 years. I am 39 . I have deep lines around my nose and mouth Weight gain isn't helping. I can't afford fillers.

You didn't say how tall you are and how much you weigh. Are you really a normal weight? If not, the lines are a sign of that. The lines could be from excessive sun exposure. If so, that's not reversible but a dermatologist might help. But as a psychiatrist I have to go back to the basic issue: are you still restricting your diet and maintaining a subnormal weight to fight anxiety?
