How to Treat Lip Balm Acne
Hello, I am Dr. Neal Schultz, and welcome to DermTV.
Chapped lips or dry lips are fairly uncomfortable and much more common in cold weather but fortunately they’re very easy to treat. There are probably hundreds of products out in the market that work really well for dry or chapped lips. Some of the products that work the best store can in some circumstances caused little bumps at the edge of the lip with lip meets the skin.
Usually on the upper lip more so of the lower lip and I usually have the appearance to be the being skin colored or red, white and sometimes even little black dots. What they really represent is little pimples, white heads or black heads and it come from some of the waxes in the ingredients in the lip balm that are actually cause clogging of the pores right at the edge of the lip.
The best thing to do is to try to prevent them and you do that by trying to keep the lip balm away from that very thin edge of your lip and if you already have those little bumps they are really difficult to treat with topical medicines. It’s much easier to see your facialist or your dermatologist and have them just push them out for you. Please join me again at DermTV.com.
