Perioral Dermatitis? Doxycycline?


My dermatologist told me i have perioral dermatitis and gave me a month's prescription for doxycycline and then finacea cream to put on it once the redness goes away....i've been on the doxycycline for a week now and if anything it's getting worse. the redness isnt quite as bad but it's so dry and sore it hurts to smile! How long does it take to work? Anyone else who has had this have any advice?
----------

I was diagnosed with it almost 2 months ago; it was caused by a topical steroid (for something else). I'm on Oracea (oral) and sulfacetamide (topical) and topical doxycycline, and I don't think mine's going away either. My dermatologist told me when it's caused by steroids it's pretty stubborn.

When my skin gets dried out from the meds I put aloe vera gel on it, and that helps a lot.  (+ info)

Does anyone know about perioral nasal dermatitis?


Im 14 and have had perioral nasal dermatitis for two years. I have it around my nose and on my chin. At first it was hardly noticeable and its getting worse. My dermatologist(i went to three) all thought i had sebborhea dermotitis. I have tried several creams for that, but i read that by putting those creams on with the case that i have, it will only become worse and now it has. As a teenager i hate having to go to school with it on my face. How can i permanantly cure perioral nasal dermotitis? Please help me!!!
----------

The fact that you now have the diagnosis must mean that either you've researched it on your own, or another doctor has diagnosed it for you. In either case, you should have been instructed on how best to take care of it. A cream, by itself, will not treat the condition, but you need the addition of another prescription product. It should then be cleared up within two weeks or less. I would go back to the doctor who made the correct diagnosis and get the correct treatment.  (+ info)

Try coconut oil. You can get it from a health food store or the Vitamine Shoppe. It is very good for skin problems and it heals the skin quickly without making it break out.

All of the references below suggest using the Extra Virgin Coconut Oil which is cold pressed and not cooked. It has more antioxidents for the skin. However, I've found that the cooked one that just says Organic Coconut oil does not irritate my skin and heals it just as well. You'll know the difference because the Organic one is clear with no fragrance. The extra virgin coconut oil is more whipped and has a sweet coconut smell to it.

I've been using coconut oil on my skin fro several months now as a moisturizer. Its really amazing how quickly it heals the skin and moistuizes it. Coconut oil is also good for dermatitis and acne. Just put it on your face before you go to bed. If it feels too thick and oily. Give your face a quick rinse with warm water and pat your face dry. The oil will be absorbed right into your skin. Your body will eat it up. In the morning you'll find that most of the oil is gone. So don't worry about clogged pores.  (+ info)

Do you know of any natural treatments for perioral dermatitis that work?


My son is 2.5 years old. I'm 95% sure he has perioral dermatitis. He has a long history of eczema and allergies. We use a topical steroid on his skin, and started using it on his face, for a rash we thought was "regular" eczema, but probably was just irritation from using a pacifier. Now that the pacifier is gone, the rash is still there (because of the steroids, and several other possible triggers). I've read 101 articles on google about perioral dermatitis and natural "remedies". Now I have a list of things to try, but would like know if anyone has ever had any actual success with them, before I go shelling out a ton of cash. I don't want to resort to prescription medication and antibiotics until I've ruled everything else out.
These are the ones I've read about (but if you have any others I would love to know):
Apple Cider Vinegar
Manuka Honey
Yogurt (would have to be goat yogurt, my son is allergic to cow dairy)
Grape Seed Extract
Calendula Oil

Do any of these work? If they do, how do I use them?
----------

See a pediatrician or a dermatologist. Perioral dermatitis usually affects women in their 20's and 30's, so I wouldn't try anything until you know what you're dealing with. I finally grew out of mine, but there was a topical ointment, something with a name similar to Tricyclomen...that worked very well for me while I had it.  (+ info)

Perioral dermatitis...what can i use other than hydrocort..i'm rashy, itchy and look like a mess..?


I currently tried clobetasol sparingly...looked better for 2 days and then a reoccurance. I keep wondering if it is truly an allergic response to wheat or gluten..? any thoughts.
----------

Steroid creams are generally not recommended for this condition. Other topical creams some dr's may prescribe are metrogel, erythromycin, or benzl peroxide. If the rash is severe you might need some oral antibiotics. This condition is very prone to reoccuring. See your Dr. Stop the hydrocortisone cream.Best of luck.  (+ info)
