What causes spots around the mouth?

February 8th, 2016

Spots around the mouth are usually down to hormones, stress, or even the wrong cosmetic products.

Suffering with spots around the mouth

Spots can be the bane of your life, especially when they are situated on your face; they can be really hard to hide or ‘cover-up’ around the mouth and jaw line. The face can be compartmentalised, each area giving you clues as to why you are getting spots - this is called face mapping. Spots around the mouth and jaw line are more often than not put down to hormones; you may find that you have more breakouts in this area during that time of the month or even in stressful situations. Acne is most common on the face although it does appear on other parts of the body. It is often brought on through overactive sebaceous glands and these can be found predominantly on the face, back, neck, chest and buttocks. Spots around the mouth, if in vast quantities and coupled with other factors, can also be a sign of other health conditions.

Best ways to treat spots around the mouth

Mild sufferers can use home remedies and topical treatments to treat spots and pimples
  • Ice can be used to bring down swelling and reduce redness of the pimples. Ice can also tighten the skin and improve blood circulation.
  • Lemon juice is rich in Vitamin C and can be used to dry up the pimples.
  • Steaming your skin opens up pores and allows your skin to breathe, removing any dirt/bacteria that may be trapped.
  • Benzoyl peroxide is a common ingredient in many acne treatments including over the counter products.
  • Tea tree oil has excellent antibacterial properties.

The above are just a few of the many home remedies/treatments that are available to help with the eradication of acne. It is sometimes best to speak to a professional who can not only prescribe treatments but can also give advice on the best treatments for you.
