Chapped lips and acne
My daughter is quite distressed with what has been going on on her face the last few days! She has painful chapped lips. I was worried it was yeast but she does not have cracks in the creases of her lips and there are no other signs of yeast inside her mouth. The rim between the inside and outside of the lip is dry, cracked and burning. She is coating her lips with vaseline and I have bought a couple of other medicated lip balms but the pain continues on. This started a few days ago. Now she did spend a couple of hours outside sledding on Tuesday afternoon. Yes, she felt well enough to go over to a friend's house to sled and hang out -- this was great. Could being out in the sun while on the abx have caused this? She is very fair but her face did not burn.
The other problem that is distressing to my 15 year old girl is the outbreak of acne. She was hoping that being on abx would prevent acne but that does not seem to be the case. She uses Proactive and it seemed to be working for awhile but now the acne is back. Is this just a normal teenage thing or maybe related to treatment somehow?
Of course these are not big problems in the scheme of things but just thought I would see if any one else has dealt with these types of issues.
