My 2 year old daughter was just diagnosed with perioral dermatitis after over 2 months of rash which did not go away with mupirocin or topical steroids. She was prescribed augmentin susp and pedipred for 10 days. I am questioning the augmentin as i have not seen that as a treatment option (why not erythomycin) and the need for oral steroid. I also read that treatment with oral antibiotics and take weeks to months and she just got a 10 day treatment. I would love some thoughts on this.
He also gave me Mupirocin Ointment 2% to reduce the lesions or irritation on the outside. Anyways, I asked him if it looked like and STD and he said no, he said it was Contact Dermatitis. I do recall always masturbating without washing my hands and went through a stupid phase where I was receiving oral sex from women and usually washing my genitals 12 hours after the incident (I was washed up before oral sex but wouldn't usually wash after).
I have what I believe is a mild case of Seborrhoeic dermatitis on the right side of my nose (it looks just like the picture on the wikipedia page), and have had this for a couple weeks. Also, a couple of years ago, my ENT, mentioned that he noticed eczma inside my ears for which he proscribed a cream (I have constant itching inside). I also have what I believe to be Tinea versicolor on my back and under my breasts. This is ongoing and I have had recurrences of this for about 10 years.
Topical antiseptic treatment and topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or neomycin containing ointment is very useful.If still the lumps persist then specific treatment like antibiotics,vit A supplements,corticosteroid injections,isotretinoin,antiandrogens and sometimes excision and drainage ,laser therapy and radiotherapy are found useful.I feel that you should consult a dermatologist and discuss these options with him.
Treatment includes local antibiotics (mupirocin),oral antibiotics or antifungal medications to control the infection.For their prescription,a dermatologist’s consultation is mandatory.Pls get it done. Also if the sores last for more than 3 wks or start spreading then pls consult a dermatologist. In that case herpes simplex I has to be ruled out. I hope that helps. Please do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries. Kind regards.
