Is This Seb Derm? (Pic)

Recommended Posts

the moustache area is dry and flakey, and there are areas of redness either side

doctor diagnosed as perioral dermititis and gave me lymecycline which I don't think is helping...also tried moisturising with coconut oil which didn't seem to help

My guess would be seborrheic dermatitis rather than perioral dermatitis. I would use a dandruff shampoo such as Nizoral every day in addition to hydrocortisone twice daily until it gets better. Once it's better then keep using the Nizoral about twice a week to keep it from coming back.

Ask your doctor to prescribe Nizoral or Taro (Ketoconazole 2%) cream. Or you can buy this cream without a prescription from India without a prescription at a price of $14 for a 20ml tube. If you are in the US, it is legal to import small amounts for your own use only. www.fda.gov/downloads/ICECI/.../UCM074300.pdf; see, page 9-13 of the FDA Regulatory Procedures Manual - August 2012 Chapter 9 Import Operations and Actions.
