Can I use ponds cold cream for perioral dermatitis? Or what should I use to wash and moisturize?

Depends: Perioral dermatitis can be allergic, infectious, fungal, or just irritative. The treatment, therefore, depends on the cause. Cracked, dry lips (especially at the angles) can often be helped with vaseline alone. Allergic or irritative can usually be treated with a short course of steroid cream. If red, blistered, draining, or crusting, you should see a doctor for recommendations. ...Read more

Sure: You may also want to put a warm compress on it. The latter will probably do more good. Keep the area clean. If you develop fever or serious pain, get seen right away. Go easy on triamcinolone for contact dermatitis -- a little of that stuff goes very far. ...Read more

Which is the most effective cream for seborrheic dermatitis facial region (ketocanzole 2%, ciclopirox 1%, or pimecrolimus 1%)?

Which is the most effective cream for seborrheic dermatitis facial region (ketocanzole 2%, ciclopirox 1%, or pimecrolimus 1%)?

Ketoconazole: Ketoconazole is my preference. Apply 2x/day for 1-2 weeks, and then you can use a couple of times/week as maintenance/prevention. Short term use of 1% hydrocortisone cream 1-2/x day can be used for a few days also to minimize redness and irritation. Don't use hydrocortisone frequently due to side effects, including the thinning of the skin in this area. ...Read more
