Perioral Dermatitis

definition

Persistent eruption composed of erythematous papules and papulopustules. It is distributed primarily around the mouth, affecting the chin and the nasolabial folds and sparing a clear zone around the vermillon border. Itching is never severe, but a sensation of burning is frequently noted. Perioral dermatitis occurs primarily in young women. A number of aetiological factors have been postulated, the main factors being occlusion of the skin surface with moisturising creams in predisposed individuals and prolonged therapy with powerful topical corticosteroids.
