Customer Question
My name is *****...

My name is ***** *****. red area between nose and upper lip

Doctor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

My teenage daughter had a bad headcold had to wipe her nose a lot. Now, the area right above her upper lip and between her nose is very red. I've tried putting Vaseline on it but it looks larger today. Any ideas? She's very self-conscious about it.

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

The redness is likely due to the friction from nose clearing.

The irritated blood vessels in the skin cause this.

Will gradually improve over time.

If no pain, then topical hydrocortisone cream can be tried twice daily.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
