I know that sometimes people prescribe antiobiotics for perioral dermatitis but I am prone to candida infections so did not want to be placed on antiobiotics unless totally necessary. I went to an integrative dermatolgist and she prescribed me ketoconazole cream to use on my face and the rash improved although it does wax/wane. It got particularly bad on one weekend around the same time that I also got a vaginal yeast infection.
These small white bumps can be folliculitis, acne or as your doctor has said, perioral dermatitis. Treatment for all three however is topical and oral antibiotics. Even treatment of perioral dermatitis is by antibiotics like doxycycline. Folliculitis is caused by blockage of the follicle. In most cases of folliculitis, the damaged follicles are then infected with the bacteria Staphylococcus (staph). First of all keep the area clean. Also use mild soaps like Dove.

Hello, Your symptoms are suggestive of cheilitis and perioral dermatitis. Avoid licking the lips as saliva evaporates quickly resulting in them being drier than before. Drink plenty of water and take multivitamin supplements and do not apply lipstick or other cosmetic products for some days. Use a humidifier to moisturize the air in your home and apply shea butter or Vaseline on your lips. Eat foods high in calcium, magnesium and flaxseed oil.
In case the symptoms persist then oral antibiotics may be needed. Also then get the possibility of perioral dermatitis ruled out. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
I've read about perioral dermatitis and have started using a non SLS toothpaste but no effect so far. I have no spots above the lip. Someone mentioned using keteronazole (nizoral) but that has SLS in. I tried azaleic acid, it did nothing. My derm prescribed daktacort but that has a steroid in it, I read these can make things worse. I was on Azathioprine (autoimmune hepatitis) for 2 years till a month ago. I haven't had steroids for AIH in 9 months. Liver functions are fine.
I looked up perioral dermatitis and it looks exactly like whta i have. I've been on antibacterial creams which did not clear it up in the slightest. i need to get on the tetracycline i think.
Hey Grace, I finally got a appointment with the doctor and he subscribed Amoxicylin and Bactroban. I used these 2 for about a week and my condition improved but was not totally eliminated. I had to stop using the Bactroban because it was making my skin above my lip very irritated and was causing a rash of its own, it also made it to wear the hear right above my lip quit growing in, probably due to clogging the pores.
My husband has been having skin rashes around his eyes, raised small red bumps, for several months and just won
