Dealing with Acne of the Mouth

Acne can be found literally anywhere on the body: the face, back, shoulders, legs and yes, even in and around the lips. Acne anywhere on your body can be painful, but acne on the mouth may be the most painful of all. The reason is simple: these types of blemishes are actually tiny infections on the lips. Most pimples are filled with pus generated by bacteria that grows in blocked skin pores. As the infection grows, the area becomes swollen and painful; sometimes even leaking pus or bleeding. The acne treatments featured in, can help you manage your blemishes in just a short period of time.

When pimples erupt on the lips and around the mouth, it can be difficult to treat due to the fact that it is hard to keep the lips completely dry and free of germs. Still, that does not mean that you are forced to live with the discomfort. There are ways to treat lip and mouth acne. Here are a few:

    • Mix equal parts of rose water (made from steamed rose petals and distilled water) and lime juice and then rub on the affected areas. Be careful not to get the mixture in your mouth. While it will not hurt you, it may not taste too well. Repeat several times a day if necessary.

    • Rub a small amount of fresh aloe vera gel on the affected area. Do not lick your lips afterward. Aloe vera can cause stomach upset if ingested. Still, it is a quick and effective treatment for treating all types of skin disorders, including acne.

    • Apply live yogurt to the pimpled area. Let dry for about 15 minutes and then wipe clean. Don’t be afraid of licking this tasty remedy off of your lips. Just remember, if it has been sitting on your acne, it likely is full of skin bacteria!

    • Make a paste using fresh crushed garlic and a few drops of honey (yogurt may also be added if you like). Rub onto lips and mouth affected by the acne and let dry. Wipe off with a clean cloth and water after about half an hour.

    • Rub some white toothpaste (void of menthol or fluoride) onto the afflicted skin. This one may sting a bit, so if it is too uncomfortable, wipe off and try something else. The important thing to remember is to use a white toothpaste that ahs no other ingredient sin it for whitening teeth.

    • Dip a tea bag containing green tea in warm water and then hold on the acne area of the lips and mouth. Hold for 15-30 minutes. Rewet the bag if needed. This is a completely safe and tasty remedy that can be repeated 5-8 times per day if necessary. You should see results quickly.

Dealing with mouth and lip acne can be a real hassle – and painful. Be sure to attack the problem right away. At the forts sign of a pimple on your lips, try one or more of these remedies for quick relief.
