    Perioral Dermatitis - Curing the Impossible

    I have battled PD for over ten years. Doctors seem to only make the problem worse. The ONLY TREATMENT THAT HAS WORKED FOR ME IS THE FOLLOWING:

    Stop using all skin creams, topical steroids, cortisone cream, cleansers, toners, serums, scrubs, lip gloss, lip balm, lipstick, sunscreen, toothpaste, gum, mints and makeup.

    Wash your face with Cetaphyl liquid cleanser and warm water (not hot, not cold) gently exfoliate with a soft cloth when needed - preferably after the redness subsides
    Use Organic Coconut Oil (used for cooking) as a moisturizer. I have breakout prone oily skin, do not be afraid of putting oil on your face - it miraculously made my skin LESS oily. Blackheads & pimples, GONE.
    Use Burt's Beeswax lip balm on your lips as needed
    Use toddler toothpaste - one that does not contain fluoride or sodium laurel sulphate

    If make up must be worn, use bare minerals powder only when absolutely necessary. Remove as soon as possible.

    Take anti yeast pills (AZO makes the one I use but all vitamin stores carry some version). If you don't already, start taking a probiotic and a multivitamin. Stop smoking and stop drinking alcohol. Keep caffeine to a minimum. Eat more green vegetables, preferably raw. Drink more water. TAKE CARE OF YOUR BODY NATURALLY. It seems to me that PD is caused by a reaction to a combination of toxins and chemicals we put in and on our bodies. Remove the chemicals and it goes away. (As devastating and uncomfortable as PD is, I'm grateful that my body isn't using cancer to tell me that what I'm exposing it to is bad!)

    This regimen has never taken more than five days to work. 80% improvement in two.

    Good luck!

    Re: Perioral Dermatitis - Curing the Impossible

    Have you ever heard of using a green tea bag on it? I was just diagnosed with it around my nose and am switching from a liquid to a mineral foundation. I am also not going to use anything on the area (no moisturizer, serums, treatments) when I sleep. I just bought the flouride and SLS free toothpaste and my fingers are crossed. I actually think that my husband brought home the Crest Pro-Health toothpaste a few weeks ago and it triggered this.
