What does a purplish ring around the lips indicate?
Peri oral dermatitis most probably
Welcome to HCM...
I read history and saw the photo.. it seems that most probably your daughter may be having lip licker dermatitis... also called peri oral dermatitis. It is a contact irritant dermatitis due to saliva by repetitive lip licking.
I would suggest..
- generous application of bland emollient...
- stop lip licking
- apply topical steroid if needed
I hope this would help you...
