Please. I am going to GPs and skin clinics etc too. But it
Hey folk,I need help. I am going to GPs and skin clinics etc too. But it would be helpful to hear from those who suffered from the same looking condition. I have been "diagnosed" (by GPs without any skin analysis or skin biopsies) with Rosacea once, Perioral Dermatitis twice and Folliculitis was suspected by another practitioner. I have had a mite going crazy on my skin when I was about 23 years old, when my immune system wasn't strong enough because of the antibiotic I was taking (for the first and to this day last time in my life). Cryotherapy (nitrogen therapy) helped in less than three weeks then, and only because my skin specialist was just amazing. Haven't had flare ups since then. This time (and I noticed from my selfies on insta as well it's been there on the left side of my chin for at least a year now but in a very mild form - maybe one-three small spots/tiny pimples) it flared up after I went overseas (left Australia in summer to travel to Austria, Germany, Georgia and Russia in winter). I obviously ran out of my skin products and used a whole bunch of whatever was available in the hotels or at home in Russia. I was very careful in hotels however, I never sleep on their pillowcases, I have mine on me when I travel, same with towels and I haven't used face towels since I was maybe 20 years old, just cotton disks. But also there obviously was a change in lifestyle - lots of drinking, no sleep, some stress too. And I was very stressed before I went overseas because of work and came back to the same stress after travels. I did eat not very well during winter here in Australia too - lots of takeaway food, burgers, chocolate, not enough water. I also worked with charcoal powder without a mask (I am an artist) for about three months straight and had a bit of a depression so stayed in that same room where I worked most times, even though I kept it clean I think charcoal dust is very fine and could just be everywhere. And this is when it went full on on the left side of my chin.Question here. Does perioral dermatitis appear only on one side of one's chin or is it always symmetrical? Could this be it or is it something scarier than POD. And I know it's hard to cure and it's already made me feel very alienated and depressed. Can't put make up on, and even when I do it looks awful so I don't anymore. I've read a lot about POD so I know all about the do's and don'ts but just wanted to see if any of you had something similar and could potentially confirm this could be it?Photos are: in black jumper - when it was starting to flare up a few months ago, in grey shirt x 2 - close up before washing in the morning, the other one is after washing and Kiwi seed oil, the straight up photo that looks just terrifying is how it looks now. It got worse after I waxed the top of my lip and it just broke me out and it went all the way up to my eye almost sorta thing. It either caused it to spread or it just broke me out and they are two separate things. I am also prone to acne.Thanks! Maria this is just a post I just wrote I am not sure if I can send photos here … read more

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
