While perioral dermatitis is a frustrating condition to pin down, there are a few common culprits it’s always worth considering when trying to manage flare-ups.
Here's our list of the eight most likely triggers for perioral dermatitis:
- Topical corticosteroid creams
- Fluoride in toothpaste
- Inflammatory triggers in diet
- Hormonal fluctuations (both from birth control and menstrual cycles)
- Cosmetics (irritant ingredients in make-up & skincare such as perfume, preservatives, soap etc.)
- Sulphates/sulfates in shampoos (SLS, SLES, ALS etc.)
- Environmental factors: strong wind, sunshine etc.
