In brief: Perioral dermatitis

Perioral dermatitis (pod) is a chronic papulopustular and eczematous facial dermatitis mainly around the mouth.
It mostly occurs in women, although a distinct papular variant occurs in children.The clinical and histologic features of the perioral dermatitis lesions resemble those of rosacea. Patients require systemic and/or topical treatment, an evaluation of the underlying factors, and reassurance.
