Perioral Dermatitis, Perioral Dermatitis Treatment

Perioral dermatitis is a common skin problem that affects young women and occasionally, men or children. "Perioral" refers to the area around the mouth, and "dermatitis" indicates a rash or irritation of the skin. The areas most affected by perioral dermatitis are the facial lines from the nose to the sides and borders of the lips, and the chin. The clinical and histologic features of Perioral Dermatitis resemble those of rosacea. Perioral dermatitis most commonly affects young women. However, it may sporadically affect men. Perioral dermatitis is usually characterized by an uncomfortable burning sensation around the mouth. Itching is usually not a prominent finding. Most patients are primarily concerned with the cosmetic appearance of skin lesions.
