Treatment & Prevention Of Perioral Dermatitis

Avoiding use of cosmetics and potent strong steroids is the first action to be taken in treating perioral dermatitis. The withdrawal of potent anti-steroids may cause a rebound flare up but that subsides in a week or two. The common therapy is to use oral antibiotics. Your doctor may also prescribe topical antibiotics, immuno-modulators and very mild steroids.

Talk to your doctor about your choice of toothpaste, as many ingredients of toothpaste are responsible for perioral dermatitis. Also stop using any cosmetics till the condition clears and after that avoid using any non-comedogenic makeup products. Use makeup products that have minimum ingredients and least chance of causing irritation. Protection from sun is very important in perioral dermatitis cases.
