What could be this?

Recommended Posts


I've always had quite problematic skin, but it mostly had been regular acne.

For the last two months I suffer from another condition - red skin around my mouth. It looks like some eczema and upon touch I feel it's less sensitive than the rest of the face. I also had breakout of such eczema (?) on both upper arms, but there it's slowly getting better.

For cca the same period I've been on the Daniel Kern's regimen, but I try to avoid the area around my mouth from applying BP since it started getting red.

Do you have a similar experience?

Here's what it looks like now:

perioral dermatitis. I had the same thing and went on 32 weeks of antibiotics and it got rid of it in a month but derm continued them just in case. its really easy to treat according to my derm. you can get it from using steroids on ur face and by being allergic to cosmetics!
