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.

  • Fluoride in toothpaste
  • Inflammatory triggers in diet
  • Stress
  • 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.)
