ⓘ Perioral dermatitis

Perioral dermatitis is a type of skin rash. Symptoms include multiple small bumps and blisters sometimes with background redness and scale, localized to the skin around the mouth and nostrils. Less commonly the eyes and genitalia may be involved. It can be persistent or recurring and resembles particularly rosacea and to some extent acne and allergic dermatitis. The term "dermatitis" is a misnomer because this is not an eczematous process.

The reason remains unclear. Topical steroids are associated with the condition, and moisturizers and cosmetics can also contribute. The underlying mechanism may cause the fouling of the surface of the skin with subsequent overgrowth of skin flora. Of fluoride toothpaste and some microorganisms, including fungi of the genus Candida can also worsen the condition, but their role in this condition is unclear. It is a disease of the hair follicle biopsies shows microscopic changes around the hair follicle. The diagnosis is based on symptoms.

The treatment is usually by stopping the topical steroids, change, cosmetics, and in more severe cases, to adopt tetracycline inside. Stop steroids may initially worsen the rash. The condition is estimated to affect 0.5-1% of the population per year in developed countries. Up to 90% of cases are women aged 16 to 45 years, although it also affects children and the elderly, as well as an increase in the incidence in men.
