Perioral Dermatitis

Perioral dermatitis is a form of rosacea that presents with redness, peeling and small red bumps in the area around the mouth, nose or eyes. Most often, young women are affected. Perioral dermatitis may be caused or made worse by sunlight, corticosteroid creams and dental products that contain cinnamon or fluoride.

Treatment of perioral dermatitis usually consists of topical metronidazole and/or an oral antibiotic. While recurrences may occur, most patients achieve significant improvement within a couple of months of therapy.
