Awhile back someone posted something about perioral dermatitis by Park Ridge. I’m wondering if that’s what my daughter gets. I realize this site isn’t for diagnosing medical issues, just looking for feedback from anyone who’s had luck treating it. Have you tried topical probiotics? Natural remedies that have worked well? We’ve tried apple cider vinegar, coconut oil, etc. Seems to come and go at same times throughout year. Could something with weather be triggering it? Haven’t changed diet or detergents. At a loss. Dermatologist just diagnosed as general dermatitis and gave us expensive cream that didn’t work. Thanks for any advice!

Go to a dermatologist. They’ll prescribe a topical and antibiotic to get rid of it.

Have you tried castor oil? It seems to be the miracle oil.

My dermatologist prescribed a mix of metrogel and erythromycin lotion. It was terrible during cold weather. Also if I stayed away from gluten it seemed to clear up faster.

Have them get you a prescription for Aczone and have her try Spirnolactone.

If nothing else, consider putting her on Accutane - that should be a last resort!

I get bumps that look exactly like those on the palms of my hands every year when the seasons change. Summer into fall and winter into spring. The only thing that has ever helped me was a prescription strength steroid cream. But putting on her face? I don’t know.

My son got it from his inhaled steroid-inhaler since he was young and used a mask to administer.

I get it as well. I stopped using all cream, face wash and foundation. The Sls sodium lauryl sulfate is a big trigger for me. I use organic apple cider vinegar on a cotton ball to clean my face nightly and the. Follow with just water Desitin cream. I put this on at night and sleep with it on (only when I have it, even it is small it stops it from getting worse) take off in the morning with water on cotton pad. This really helps! Usually by day 2-3 it’s gone. Daily cream I use calendula cream found in the baby section at Whole Foods. I’ll message you as well a link

Eczema? my kids took Accutane. I don't recommend it unless it's serious painful cystic acne. the side effects are not worth it. have you tried anything OTC

I have something at my clinic called Yin Care. You can look it up online. It’s an herbal liniment for all types of inflammatory skin issues. Can be used for acne, eczema, dermatitis, hives you name it. No side effects and it really works. Let me know if you want to know more or set a bottle aside for you.

If it comes and goes at the same time every year, my guess might be some kind of seasonal allergy?
