Lip fold pyoderma

It is a skin infection in the folds of skin along the lower jaw

You can scrub the area gently with Hibitane (chlorhexidine) twice daily for a few weeks

Make sure to really rinse the skin well after washing it

This will clear up the infection

IF it does not get appreciably better within 3-4 days time then oral antibiotics will be needed

Okay?

Can get Hibitane at pharmacy OTC

How do you the Lip fold pyoderma?

The food particles fall out of mouth and lodge in folds->lunch for bacteria

And the folds are moist and so bacteria love to hang out there
