Perioral dermatitis

Perioral dermatitis is an acne-like skin disease that mainly occurs in young, female adults. 

The skin condition is perceived as red rash with swollen, inflamed bumps called papules, typically located near mouth and chin, and occasionally cheeks. The condition may also occur around eyes. Perioral dermatitis is not a serious condition, and by using the correct products, it can be held under controll.

How does perioral dermatitis occur??
The exact cause of perioral dermatitis is unknown, but there are many theories. One theory is that this skin condition is caused by follicular fusiform, a type of bacteria. Avoid triggering factors such as topical cortinsone creams, excessive sun exposure, overly active treatments that irritate the skin barrier, and stress.

How to treat perioral dermaitits?
When treating perioral dermatitis, take into consideration that it should be treated as a sensitive condition using mild products and light moisturizers. Sulfur and Azelic-acid possess anti-inflammatory properties, while Niacinamide moisturize and strengthens the skin barrier. Avoid active ingredients such as fruit-acids and concentrated topical vitamin A, when the condition is active.



Use mild products without too much oils and active ingredients.
