At the Asarch Center, 90% of the cases of the patients with perioral dermatitis that we see and treat are young women.
This type of dermatitis is characterized by a facial rash with raised bumps forming around the mouth. In some cases, a similar rash may appear around the eyes, nose, or forehead.
Though the exact cause of perioral dermatitis is not known, it can appear following the treatment of topical steroid creams which have been used to treat other skin conditions.
In addition to the bumps that appear on the skin, the perioral dermatitis is characterized by an uncomfortable burning sensation around the mouth.
To treat perioral dermatitis, the first suggestion doctors make is to stop using all topical steroid medications and facial creams. Anti- Inflammatory oral antibiotics may also be prescribed.
The Asarch Center values each and every patient. Our team of medical experts receive specialized training in their respective fields to provide our patients with the most up to date treatments, procedures and the highest standard of care.
