Perioral dermatitis

Well...

I went to the dermatologist today. I've been diagnosed with dermatitis on my scalp which has been a battle for quite some time now but I really needed something better to control the irritation.  I also got fed up with bumps on my chin and above my lip.  The bumps have been leaving red dots all over my chin and upper lip.  I've even had a few cysts.  :o(

I found out that it isn't acne, but perioral dermatitis.  He prescribed Metronidazole for the acne-like bumps.

If any of you are suffering from acne-like bumps around the mouth area I highly encourage you to see a dermatologist.

I sure hope it at least helps!
I wanted to review Inglot's AMC Lipgloss, but I don't want to scare anyone.  I'll try to do a review and maybe it will be a before and after the treatment.

It's good to know that you are treated now. I have irratation on my scalp as well :( I've been dealing with it since I was 18 or so :/

Oh no ! :( I'm glad you got it diagnosed right away though. So many things can irritate your skin and make you think they're one thing when it's another that a lot of skin problems go untreated. I hope your skin clears soon! :)

Thanks ladies! I kept wondering why I was breaking out all of a sudden, and hopefully everything works out.

I'm sorry to hear that. How did you know when to see a doctor? I learned not to touch marks on my face because it's not always a pimple though it may seem like it.

I hope you'll get better soon!

The bumps started happening all of a sudden, and usually I would only get one or two bumps every now and then.
I started getting them way too often and only around my mouth and jawline.
