Treatment for Perioral Dermatitis
Perioral (periorificial) dermatitis is an inflammation of the skin around the mouth. The skin can be scaly, dry, and flaky and present swollen, inflamed bumps. Sometimes this red rash also affects the areas around the nose and the eyes. A lack of skin fat in the lips and around the mouth also contributes to this skin condition.
The treatment for perioral dermatitis involves addressing the external and internal causes. Periorificial dermatitis can be related to genetic factors, the condition of the teeth, gums, intestine, stomach, digestive reflux, occlusive skincare, and medication.
