Thanks for consulting Healthcaremagic.
This is Dr. Priyanka Tiwari answering your query.
I have read your query as far as scrapable small white patch inside lower cheek is concerned that can be Fordyces granules . There is nothing to be worried .Fordyces spots are nothing but normal variations of sebaceous glands (glands that normaly producing sebum) . Sometimes sebaceous spots cause anxiety but they are completly harmless.
Can you upload image of small white patch in report section that will be more helpful for me to arrive at conclusion and give you proper diagnosis .
Based on details provided i will suggest you dont take stress and you can take medicine like vitamin B complex with folic acid .
Awating for picture to comment further.
Hope this will help you .
Seems like fordyces spot . No treatment is required. Nothing to worried .
Thanks for uploading image . As far as i have observed image look like fordyces spots . There is nothing to worry.
Fordyces spots do not require any treatment . Avoid picking or squeezing of spots . For mild irritation you can take Vitamin B complex with folic acid .
Hope I have answered your query .
If you have further query I will be happy to help.
Angular chelitis , treatment .
I have read your query and gone through the image you have attached . As far as i have noticed yes it seems like Angular chelitis . For this i would suggest an oral B-complex vitamin + Zinc supplement (Cap Becosule-Z) once daily for 3-4 weeks.
Topically you could apply a mild steroid + antifungal combination cream e.g Eumosone- M cream OR Clotrin- B cream, twice daily for 7-10 days.
That should make it fine
Hope i have answered your query .
If you have further query i will be happy to help.
