Noticing small pink bumps popping up around your mouth? You could have perioral dermatitis. Like most forms of dermatitis, this condition is characterized by skin inflammation and its telltale redness. But before you freak out, don’t! Dr. Tsippora Shainhouse, a dermatologist at Rapaport Dermatology of Beverly Hills assures us that perioral dermatitis is completely manageable with proper treatment. Below, she explains exactly what this skin condition is and how to deal with it if you have it.

What Is Perioral Dermatitis?

Perioral dermatitis is a rash that develops around the mouth, nose and sometimes eyes that is actually in the same family as Rosacea. It can look like small pink bumps or scaly pink patches. It is not usually itchy or painful. Doctors are not exactly sure why it occurs, but it can probably be triggered by stress and skin products, especially topical steroids.

How To Treat Perioral Dermatitis?

Treatment involves discontinuing the instigating product (usually a steroid), together with topical and sometimes oral antibiotics with anti-inflammatory activity. Expect it to take weeks for the rash to improve.
