Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
yes, topical steroid creams are a no no for perioral dermatitis and can make it worse.
you should see a rheumatologist
and get a lip and oral mucosa biopsy to check for sjorgren's syndrome which is an autoimmune disorder which can cause severe dry mouth and nose and eyes and could be part of the problem.
you don't have dry mouth or dry eyes?
this does sound like perioral dermatitis.
it can be a tough condition to treat.
it is rare, you may benefit from seeing a dermatologist at a larger academic medical center where they see rare cases more often.
