My Face Is Not Clear!
About six years ago, I used to put excessive amounts of Vaseline around my mouth. I did this during the summertime. When school came around, I didn't want to put on the Vaseline.
The area around my mouth then became very, very dry. I would lick the area around my mouth to moisten it. It then became extremely taut, and it would burn.
At one point, it was white, and then red. After it became a problem, my mom took me out of school to see a doctor, who in turn said that it was just an allergic reaction to something I ate. She said that it would probably fade within a few weeks. It is still there till this day.
Around the fall of 2007, I began to use hydroquinone 4% cream and there was only a slight change. I am desperate to find some help with this problem because it is destroying my self-image and confidence. If you could please offer me any advice or insight or anything helpful in this matter, I would be extremely grateful.
Thank you for your time.
