Hi All,

Can someone please look at the below photos and tell me what condition this is? My chin feels extremely tight and slightly sore. I had this for years now and its really making me depressed.

    Hi Phil

    It is quite difficult to see clearly.

    Have you asked a doctor about it?

    What have you put on it?

    Can you describe it a little for me? Is it blistered or just open and, does it recover and return or just never go away?

    I have approved the links to the pictures but you can now upload images directly into the forums using the right hand icon at the top of the reply box next to the B etc icons.

    Regards,

    does anyone body have any suggestions?

    I have seen many dermatologists, most of which dont know what it actually is.

    Some have suggested perioral dermatitis,rosacea etc

      Sorry, my browser kept crashing!

      I don't know what you do with your beard if you are going to put a dressing on a lesion for about a fortnight or so. 

      Have you looked at   http://www.dermnetnz.org/  This is an excellent site for skin problems and it also offers other links
