Perioral Dermatitis: Perioral dermatitis is a chronic papulopustular and eczematous facial dermatitis. It mostly occurs in women and children. The clinical and histologic features of the perioral dermatitis lesions resemble those of rosacea. Patients require systemic and/or topical treatment such as oral antibiotics, an evaluation of the underlying factors, and reassurance. Lip licking can also cause this condition.
