perioral dermatitis

Question: I am trying to manage perioral dermatitis. During the summer, I was prescribed tetracycline for the problem. It helped for awhile, but the dermatitis is back again. I have a tendency to want to put hydrocortisone because it temporarily helps. I want to try to manage this in every way I can. I recently purchased the Cleansing Milk by Juice Beauty to wash my face with. I just would like to know if I should look into changing my foundation? I currently use Clinque and have also used Estee Lauder. Can these foundations cause more problems for me? What would you suggest? Thanks
Answer:

Perioral dermatitis as I’m sure you know is generally caused by products such as toothpaste and/or products used on the face. I think it would be a good idea for you to consider using mineral makeup such as Jane Iredale Makeup or Colorescience Makeup. For proper color matching I suggest you call our customer service center at 1-800-213-3376. Best skin care wishes.
