What exactly are these little red bumps? As a teenager, I can't exactly
say that any pimples I get around the mouth are tuba related, but this does
happen when I practice excesively also, although not in the area you
described, but rather above the upper lip. However, it is always on an area that is frequently in contact with the mouthpiece. If I were you, I would try an acne
treatment or something of that sort. I don't actually do this myself unless
I'm absolutely desparate but it's the only thing that comes to mind.
