Avatar_n_tn I have been on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doxycycline</span> for 1 month now for perioral <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dermatitis</span> and have stopped all creams and face washes,even changed my shampoo and toothpaste, so nothing with SLS in it. I also only use distilled water to wash my face,I am still slightly red and sometimes it even gets really red and inflammed still for no appearent reason, Should I go bacjk to Dr and get my meds changed or is this still normal for only 1 month on antibiotics?
Avatar_n_tn Scrubbing should be avoided. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doxycycline</span> is the preferred antibiotic for perioral <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dermatitis</span> but minocycline can also be used. In unresponsive and granulomatous forms, oral isoterinoin may also be considered.

For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar_m_tn My doctor gave me doxycycline Hyclate to take 100 mg twice a day for a month. i have been taking it for 4 days so far... and my chin (where the dermatitis is) seems to be extremely dry and it looks actually a little worse than before.

Avatar_m_tn I am a male and in my teens and have perioral dermatitis which I have read is uncommon, I know exactly how I got the skin condition from to much use of a Steroidal topical cream, I am now going through my second flare up - my last flare was about 2 years ago around this time, I think the flare up was caused by chlorinated water, which I read is not good for this condition I have been struggling to keep this condition under control and my treatment from my last time does not seem to be working, w
Avatar_n_tn 3rd visit she said stop using Elocon, still on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doxycycline</span>. I now Have been off Elocon for 54 days. Rash has 0 pimples, have been testing with Cleocin T & Metrolotion. Metrolotion burns my rash & makes it worse, Cleocin seems to work better. Before using Metro, the rash was light pink, and looking better. Tried Metrolotion 1 night, two days ago and rash is red again. Last visit to derm, she is convinced it is not POD, but does not know what the rash is.

Avatar_n_tn Hi, I have tried tons of treatments for my periodontal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dermatitis</span>. Raw honey works the best so far. I have been battling this for over a year.
Avatar_f_tn Hello, This can be due to steroid induced rosacea. Steroid induced rosacea or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dermatitis</span> is an adverse effect of using steroids. Some patients develop steroid-induced rosacea within weeks of applying a topical steroid; others may not experience it for years. Using tacrolimus often resolves the itch, redness, and tenderness of steroid-induced rosacea but it should be taken after a dermatologist’s guidance.

Avatar_n_tn The rosacea comes and goes, but for the most part, is not the problem. I have been prescribed Aclovate for the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dermatitis</span>, which has been extremely effective, however, I am trying to conceive and would like to find an over-the-counter non-steroidal topical treatment (if at all possible). The rash re-appears four to five days after the Aclovate is discontinued (and worsens over time, especially in the cold weather). Your suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Avatar_f_tn I am presently taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doxycycline</span> for periroral dermatits, which I've had for about two months. The rash seems to slowly be clearing. Are you suggesting that one avoid moisturizers and such forever, even once the rash has cleared up? I just turned 50 and my skin is dry. I've stopped all use of moisturizers while I am treating this, but living in Maine, I can't imagine my skin enduring Maine winters without the use of a moisturizer.
Avatar_n_tn I have been given <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doxycycline</span> Capsules 50mg per day for one month. I have been to my GP several times and who I really don’t think they know anything about the condition as I was initially given thrush cream and put on the yasmin contraceptive pill. My questions to you are: 1. do you think I have been give the right dose of doxycycline and for the correct duration 2. is the Dakacort the appropriate cream to be using 3.
Avatar_f_tn Ive visited a new dermatologist last 3 weeks. She prescribed me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doxycycline</span> 100mg per day for a month and Its been 2 weeks since i started taking it my face is kinda clearing up but my back and chest part is i think becoming worse and sometimes its itchy. And some part of my body is getting this bumps just few. Im so worried about it. I cant go back to her to ask cause im busy with scool and my next appointment to her will be 2 weeks from now. I just want to ask if its normal or what.
Avatar_f_tn Meanwhile i developped perioral <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dermatitis</span>. A dermatologist advise me to take <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doxycycline</span> which is out of the question since this antibiotic can cause a flare of the SLE. Is there any other, alternative antibiotic i could use for this skin condition i have? Thanks you very much.

Avatar_f_tn I used it for about 4 months only at night, I then began to notice that my skin was addicted, so I stopped using locoid and of course 4 days later had a horrible outbreak. I went to another derm. who told me I had perioral Dermatits and he put me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doxycycline</span> for 4 weeks and then amoxicillin for 10 days. 2 months later all the bumps have gone which is great but whenever I eat or talk tooo much the area where I had perioral dermatitis flushes and turns blotchy for a while.
Avatar_f_tn I have seen improvement but it still comes and goes. How long do I need to continue to use the metrogel to keep the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dermatitis</span> away for good? 3 months? Not sure how long I should use it. Also, I was on doxycycline however it upsets my stomach (with or without food) so I have to call my doctor on monday to try a different antibiotic. Anything you reccomend as far as an antibiotic? Also what about using Metrogel while taking an antibiotic at the same time?
Avatar_m_tn month went by and my condition appeared the same or worse -spread to my cheeks/nose, also developed itching only in the night-time tried Lotrimin on my upper lip & within 3 days the burning sensation decreased except on cheeks where I hadn't been applying the lotrimin as long second dermatologist said still felt it was bacterial & prescribed noritate 1% & minocycline A B vitamin deficiency & fungal infection exacerbated?
Avatar_f_tn I've had perioral <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dermatitis</span> for about three-four months now and I am finally noticing it disappearing. It's about gone on my chin, but now its just around my nose and above my mouth. I had a very bad/heavy case of POD this year because I used steroids for my eczema. Now that I am noticing it disappearing... and since it was such a bad case of POD, could it possibly ever scar? What are my chances of it scarring? Or will it just fade completely after a while? Thanks!

Avatar_f_tn I am a twenty seven year old female that has been dealing with perry oral dermatitis for 13 years. Over this time I have taken over 50 refills of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doxycycline</span> in a seven year period; it now no longer has any effect. After I was given two back to back prescriptions of minocycline which had little to no effect as well.
Avatar_f_tn I read it takes one-two months for the metrogel to really work when it comes to the periocular <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dermatitis</span> under the eye. Not sure if thats true.
Avatar_f_tn he told me the doctor should have taken a culture swab form the infected area. he treated me for perioral <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dermatitis</span> and told me to STOP tasking all of the medication i was previously prescribed. thats $650 out of pocket i had to waste. did i mention i hadnt worked al week because of the emotional trauma of having a gnarly rash growing on my face. at this point i was just plain depressed. a recluse, couldnt even leave my own bedroom.

Avatar_m_tn ) (this was a month ago) I was diagnosed with perioral <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dermatitis</span> and given 100mg doxy. once a day for a month and Klaron. Over the course of treatment I felt as though the klaron was irritating my cheeks (where I didn't really have any issues until I started treatment, but was putting the lotion there anyway thinking it would kepe it form spreading).
Avatar_n_tn Everyone with any type of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dermatitis</span> should consult a doctor and ask for allergy tests. Now there are two types, delayed and immediate. Often delayed allergies are the answer to many health problems. I am asthmatic and therefore have cut out lots of different ingredients ( though I have been bad and not followed the list properly!) Now I have suddenly developed an invisible dermatitis on the entry of the vagina!
