I had this rash on my face and now it has moved around my nose. Its sore and flares up with tiny tiny watery blister that sort of weep and then dry up and then go scabby, its really unpleasant, are we all talking about the same sort of rash. If anyone knows what it might be or if it has a name so I can look this up.

Well, I'm joining the list...have a itchy rash on my chin. got it about a year ago and also as a child. The doctor gave me fluticasone cream which dried it out and went away after a week or so. It's got to be a fever blister (cold sore related). A few of you have written about it spreading to other places. Don't touch it and then touch something else cuz it will spread. This is herpies related. I spent the weekend in the sun and that's what caused it to re-surface this time. To the mom who thinks it's dietary cuz her son has it too...You probably kissed him and gave it to him....that sucks for your son. I see moms kiss their kids with cold sores all the time...that's so stupid....why are you going to put your child through the same pain you have suffered through over the years. Icing immediately for the first 24 hours of the first signs will help keep it small and chances are it will go away quicker. L-lysine does help (you can get it at the vitamin shop)...don't eat peanut butter...it has something that makes it worse (can't think of it right now). Well, good luck to everyone and stop touching it...just leave it alone and don't touch anybody with it cuz it is contagious.

I disagree with the above. I have had recurring chin rash problems for a number of years and I just had a physical a few months ago and tested negative for all STD's - including Herpes 1 & 2. It still could be Herpes but don't discount food allergies, eczema, and even kissing your significant other. Kissing usually spurns it on for me and then it can take weeks to go away!

Hi, I'm 33 yrs. old and have been having the break outs for 3 yrs. It starts out as a begining zit,sore, then it erupts as small clear blister, then drys up and scabs up. And the Dermatologist I went to told me that it was Adult Acne. He told me it was stress related. I'm starting to believe thats a crock. He put me on Hydrocortisone cream 2.5\% and Econazole nitrate cream, it helps some, but what I want to know is what causes it???????? And how to stop it period. If any one might know please, Help

I think it sounds as if some of you have "Perioral Dermatitis" or "Perioral Dermatit". Have any of you considered this? Try seaching the web for info and pictures, that's how I found out

Hi my husband actually found this site cuase he thought i had herpes or something . I also have had inpegtito on my chin in the same area as a child which is sctually catagorized as a stain of strep virus. which i also have & it "hibernates untill i am exposed to any one with the slightest cold . but about the rash i have found an at home remedy that really work well & it only takes about a week to get the red bumps /sesitivity to all including water.

i have even tried steroid cream after my doctor gave up on trying to diagnose it. I do not adsvise that yes it goes away almost instintly but it causes permanet damage to your skin.


my at home starts with washing my face with nothing but very hot water as hot as u can stand it and letting the rag sit lay on your face for about 2 mins. then apply ALOT of clinique acne solutions emergancy lotion which u can by at any appearall store like nordstom or gottchalks it is only about 17 dolars apply it liberly through out the day and wash your face through out thday also it will gat very dry & possibly tingle/sting tough through it it really works . to get rid of the dry patches on your face now use a product called peacfull pea belly rub for just 2-3 days and you will look brand new . I found that product when i was pregnant because i could not use steroid cream. It works for me & now i hope it works for you
