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?
Scrubbing should be avoided. Doxycycline is the preferred antibiotic for perioral dermatitis but minocycline can also be used. In unresponsive and granulomatous forms, oral isoterinoin may also be considered. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.

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
3rd visit she said stop using Elocon, still on doxycycline. 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.

Hello, This can be due to steroid induced rosacea. Steroid induced rosacea or dermatitis 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.
A mild soap or soap substitute, such as Dove or Cetaphil should be used for washing. Scrubbing should be avoided. Doxycycline is the preferred antibiotic for perioral dermatitis but minocycline can also be used. In unresponsive and granulomatous forms, oral isoterinoin may also be considered. Pimecrolimus cream can also be used. I suggest you to consult a dermatologist and discuss these treatment options with your dermatologist. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
The rosacea comes and goes, but for the most part, is not the problem. I have been prescribed Aclovate for the dermatitis, 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.
I am presently taking doxycycline 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.
I have been given Doxycycline 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.
Meanwhile i developped perioral dermatitis. A dermatologist advise me to take doxycycline 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.

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 doxycycline 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.
I have seen improvement but it still comes and goes. How long do I need to continue to use the metrogel to keep the dermatitis 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?
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?
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 doxycycline 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.
I've had perioral dermatitis 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!

I read it takes one-two months for the metrogel to really work when it comes to the periocular dermatitis under the eye. Not sure if thats true.

he told me the doctor should have taken a culture swab form the infected area. he treated me for PERIORAL DERMATITIS 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.
) (this was a month ago) I was diagnosed with perioral dermatitis 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).
Everyone with any type of dermatitis 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!
doxy seems to give me nausea, and I stopped taking it after about 8 days because the nausea was so uncomfortable. Is there an antibiotic that is as effective as doxy for perioral dermatitis without causing nausea? Should I go back on the doxy and see if I can keep it down? I'm seeing my general practitioner on Friday to ask Qs about keeping down doxycycline, but I don't know if there are dermatologist-recommended non-nauseating antibiotic alternatives for skin problems.
