Wondered if someone could provide some help with my skin issues.  For over a year now I have been battling with severe dry, itchy skin but its just around my mouth.  I have never had any problems before, but its killing my confidence now !!! 

I have been to the doctors several times - they gave my hydrocortisone which did not work, then something a bit more powerful, which again had no help, clindamycin (again no impact) and finally I just finished a course of floxacillin which has not done anything.  A dermatologist could not help me either. 

I have put a pic here :



Any advice on this would be much appreciated - thanks

    looks cyanotic. You could have lost oxygen near the mouth since it does look cyanotic there. You should definetely go to a doctor because cyanosis anywhere is a big problem.
