Perioral Dermatitis

Perioral dermatitis is a common complexion problem of young adults, particularly women age 21 to 36, which involves the areas around the mouth and chin. It presents with small, red, itchy bumps which come and go. It is often misdiagnosed as a dermatitis and treated with steroid creams which may control the itching but usually makes the problem worse. Effective therapy is readily available, however, recurrences are common if therapy is discontinued too quickly.
