Perioral Dermatitis

Hey everyone,

I finished my second course of accutane for mild acne last year around this time, and had clear skin until the summer when I started to get breakouts only right below my mouth. From then on, I have recurring clusters (2-3) pustules. The skin around the area is always dry and can burn. I have done alot of reading on this and it seems to be perioral dermatitis; but the question is- what can i do to get rid of it??? I use benzoyl peroxide for spot control and cetaphil moisturizer. could these items lead to the spots?

Thanks for your help!

Fisiogel A.I (Stiefel) or Effaclar H (La Roche Posay), both are moisturizer that help the skin to recover from dryness.
