Rash under lower lip

My relatives son is 14 years old . Whenever he eats any spicy food or salty food or washes his face with soap he gets a reddish rash under the lower lip and it gets very difficult for him neither to eat or speak. He constantly complains of severe pain and had tried some antiseptic creams like borolin . The pain and the reddish rash are not subsiding. I am afraid that is some bacterial infection . Please tell me what the problem is and by using which creams he can combat this infection

Hi Greetings. Firstly see a good qualified dermatologist near you - to check if its an allergy - more likely as per your history - or an infection . The treatment for the two problems is different. Alternatively you can send pictures on private folllow up chat, I could probably help you with the diagnosis. Ask the patient to avoid the triggering factors; also to use a cleansing lotion like cetaphil instead of soap. hope this helps, warm regards- Dr Govind Suresh Mittal
