Customer Question

I have a rash on the corner of my mouth. It's spreading. It's now on the other side of my mouth and under my nose. There is also a spot near my eye now. It sometimes has raised bumps (some fluid filled some not) and is a bit crusty at times. I tried Abreva and it didn't work. My primary care dr gave me acyclovir which didn't work. Now she gave me a steroid cream and diflucan. Neither of which are working. I can't get into the dermatologist for a month and I am concerned that this keeps spreading. It's not itchy.
I can send pictures if that helps!

I would indeed appreciate viewing the pictures. Send by clicking on the paper clip icon and uploading. This does not work with Google Chrome or Safari, in which case you might use a photosharing site such as Photobucket or PIcasa.
Thank you.
