What meds r u using: Perioral dermatitis is frequently caused by usage of topical steroid preparations on the face. If u are putting any lotions or creams on your face, check that they don't contain a steroid and stop using them! see a dermatologist who can prescribe Protopic for example, which can decrease the pod without worsening it after you stop the med.
