I don’t really know whether is it eczema or not but I’m experiencing very dry, flaky and red skin around my lips and sometimes it have fluid coming out from my lips. Other than that, my right hand is dry most of the time until I couldn’t see my fingerprints and my legs are dry too. Is it possible that this is eczema?

Hi and thank you for your question.

We truly understand your concern regarding the very dry, flaky and red skin around the lip that is sometimes accompanied by fluid excretion. You are also wondering whether the symptoms have a relation with eczema. We will try to help you.

For your information eczema are sometimes referred to as atopic dermatitis, a skin inflammatory condition that is triggered by an allergic reaction. Eczema is usually associated with symptoms such as itchy, dry, rough, flakey, inflamed, and irritated skin.

Nevertheless, inflamed and irritated lips can be a sign of other serious problems that requires the doctor’s attention, such as:

  • yeast infection
  • actinic cheilitis
  • malnutrition

You are also encouraged to talk to our doctor online so that we can help you further.

We hope you will be satisfied with our answer.
