Proper Treatment

Perioral Dermatitis is often not well treated by topical steroid creams, which often cause symptoms to worsen for days or weeks before any improvement. Our dermatologists typically advise to avoid scrubbing one’s face and, for difficult cases, to stop the use of fluoridated toothpaste.
