  Perioral dermatitis is a chronic facial dermatosis characterized by small papules and pustules on a red, sometimes scaled skin typically affected area of nasobuccal sulci and a of a chin, with sparing a narrow area round lips. It can be manifested also perinasal and at lateral parts of both eyes. Subjective symptoms include tingling and burning, pruritus is rare. Causative agents at children are most often overusage of tooth-pastes with fluor, various emollients and local corticoids. For healing an elimination of causative agents and local treatments are necessary. Peroral treatment with children is used only exceptionally. Less severe forms of perioral dermatitis can be treated by a general practitioner as far as this physician has a good knowledge of this diagnosis. More severe forms have to be treated by a dermatologist.
