Thank you so much for your reply.I would be happy to help.The rash looks like a Atopic Eczema.You can treat it as follows:Use over the counter Cetaphil cleansing lotion to cleanse the face. Avoid Dettol , Savlon or any other harsh products.Use Aveeno Skin relief lotion on the full face and neck daily after bath.Use Tacrolimus ointment on the area twice a day on the lips and other affected area . This would help solve your issue. Remember that you would need to use Tacrolimus ointment daily on the area proactively to prevent the recurrence for atleast 3 months. Do let me know if you have any further queries.
