Brief Answer:
Cortisone cream & moisturising cream

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at HealthcareMagic
It could be cheilitis which is inflammation of the lip.
If I was your treating doctor I would recommend you to apply topical steroid like cortisone cream on the affected rough area twice daily along with frequent and liberal application of a moisturising cream containing white soft paraffin on entire lips 3-4 times in a day for 7-8 days.
This should resolve the problem.
Regards
Dr Asmeet

I have raised red patches that sometimes itch, sometimes don t. They are in various places on the whole body basically.

I used an old steroid cream, triamcinolone acetonide and the cetaphil, and it went away again. Now have some again, plus skin reddens and goes away sometimes almost instantly in various places on my body. Any idea whats happening?
