Patient : Hey Doctor.
I need your help. I have this problem with my lip, I have brown marks around the outer area of the corner of my lips. Both sides, and on the right side, there appears to be a small bump. I've had this problem for quite some time, around 3 years. It's not that bad, but it's definitely noticeable and that just kills my self esteem. I've been to the dermatologist twice, the first one just gave me some antifungal, the second one prescribed me oral medication minocycline, and gave me ketoconazole to put on it twice a day, I got both those medications 4 months back, and I have not seen any improvement. He thinks, or thought it was angular cheilitis, I've tried vitamins, thinking it was a deficiency, a b-complex, centrum multivitamin, I've applied chapstick, I've applied aquaphor, I've done everything I can. It just doesn't seem to go away. I've attached photos, please help me, please tell how to make it go away.
