Perioral dermatitis - what is important to know about skin care?

There are many different causes for perioral dermatitis. Frequently anaerobic bacteria (living without oxygen) are involved similar to acne and rosacea. Hence lipid-enriched creams are contraindicated for the care of this sensitive skin. They would only result in a proliferation of bacteria below the external lipid film with the consequence that the skin may virtually "explode". Therefore it is recommended to use anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and recovery-supporting active agent concentrates in pure form and without lipid base. Nevertheless, if you still prefer using a cream, then apply it only very sparingly.
