Causes And Treatment For Perioral Dermatitis?
Ass, I used to use a variety of creams, and now I have perioral dermatitis, around the mouth and nose. I have stopped cream for almost a year and I use cinolon ointment to heal, but if you don’t use the ointment for a day, it will immediately appear again. I want to get well. Guess what I have to do, do doctors have a solution? Thank you
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Perioral dermatitis is a specific skin condition characterized by the appearance of inflammation and rashes around the mouth to cause a circle. This condition can feel itchy or not itchy, but usually not painful. There can also be a feeling of tightness and burning, also dry on the affected area.
The cause of this condition is still uncertain until now, what is clear is that the condition is not contagious and among several factors that can affect are:
Use of hormonal contraception
Lack of facial hygiene
Drug side effects
Cosmetic side effects and sunscreen
Exposure to sunlight
So it is important for you to check your condition directly to the dermatologist to see which possible causes that occur in you. Because for example the main trigger is a cosmetic side effect, will be different handling because of exposure to sunlight. If because of cosmetics, it means the cosmetics must be replaced, and if due to sun exposure means the exposure must be avoided. By seeing a dermatologist directly, it can be seen more clearly the cause of your condition, including if it turns out there are other medical conditions besides perioral dermatitis. Handling will be more precise so that you can recover faster.
Meanwhile, the important thing is to maintain facial hygiene, not just use cosmetics, stay away from pollution, smoke and dust, and immediately see a doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
