Derma roller & post hyperpigmentation angular cheilitis
« on: April 12, 2013, 03:43:41 PM »

I was wondering whether dermarolling will help post hyperpigmentation due to angular cheilitis?

Dermarolling will not help and should not be used because angular cheilitis is either caused by a fungal or bacterial infection or it is due to chronic inflammation.

You should address the cause. If the cause was addressed and there is really just post-inflammation, dermaneedling is not suitable either. You can try a non steroidal anti-inflammatory such as Nurofen rapid capsules (it contains ibuprofen). Prick the capsule and apply some of it regularly on the redness (or mix it into a little cream). It will sting and it will make it temporarily more red but eventually it should suppress inflammation. First try it on one side only because this kind of inflammation often behaves in unpredictable ways.
My comments should not be considered medical advice.
