Abstract

Perioral dermatitis is an inflammatory facial skin disorder that predominantly affects women. It is rarely diagnosed in children. The etiology of perioral dermatitis is unknown; however, uncritical use of topical corticosteroids often precedes skin lesions. There is a written diagnostic work-up, differential diagnosis and treatment.
