Shampoo Free from Now On! And you can read mine here!
My Story Hiding behind a coffee cup First of all, thank you for all the emails and comments on this post. I never dreamed my story would be able to help as many people as it has, but I'm so glad it did.
If my perioral dermatitis flares up, I use a small amount of the cream and it goes away. It's an antifungal and sold in most pharmacies as a treatment for athlete's foot.
I recently saw an incredible allergist for an unrelated problem OMG what a year who confirmed as the two dermatologists I saw previously did NOT that my perioral dermatitis WAS a fungal infection, caused by yeast, which is related to allergies.
In fact, he's written the premier study in the field on this exact topic, and he confirmed that the use of Lotrimin or the equivalent generic is an appropriate treatment.
For once, my obsessive 3: Even my above statement regarding my allergist's recommendations don't count as actual medical advice. What is perioral dermatitis?
Slightly itchy, slightly bumpy, reddish and really really annoying inflammation of the skin around the mouth. It affects mostly women between the ages of and might have a hormonal element. I was diagnosed with this condition about a year ago, after a stubborn, bumpy red rash under my nose and on my chin just wouldn't go away and I finally dragged myself to a dermatologist NOT the way I'd prefer to spend my rare kid-free, work-free hours.
Though the doctor laughed when I suggested it, I'm fairly certain the perioral dermatitis was brought on by over-zealous use of my Clarisonic Mia--I've always been a huge fan of exfoliating and just couldn't help myself with all those scrubby rotating bristles The Clarisonic just made it worse, and I finally had to stop exfoliating all together.
The dermatologist sent me home with a month's worth of oral antibiotics and a prescription for sulfur face wash. I really, really hate taking antibiotics unless it's absolutely necessary--but I also hated having a gross embarrassing rash on my face. So I took the antibiotics, I used the face wash The rash cleared up a tiny bit maybe?
It came right back. I tried just the face wash. I tried drinking more water. I tried a different face lotion typically I only moisturize with coconut oil. A few months later and fed up again, I went back to the dermatologist. This time I was given Finacea cream, Metronidazole gel, and more sulfur face wash.
All of which was expensive and, for me at least, totally ineffective. The label on the Finacea says it can take up to eight weeks to see results Eight more weeks just wasn't an option. So I went where I probably should have gone in the first place: I scoured every blog post and article and comment I could find on perioral dermatitis treatment, specifically looking for natural remedies for perioral dermatitis, since I've been trying to rid our home of as many chemicals as possible and really hoped for a cure that would not only get rid of the rash, but be as natural as possible.
Below is a breakdown of what I tried, what worked and what didn't, and what finally ended up being the cure--for me.
I write this blog post with the hope that someone, somewhere, finds it helpful in beating a stubborn, truly awful condition. After all my research, a ton of trial and error, and hundreds of treatment dollars spent, the truth about perioral dermatitis seems to be this: No one really knows how to treat it.
But most importantly, the cause--and the cure--seem to be different for every person.
So the best advice I can give anyone suffering from POD and looking for a solution is to try everything you can, keep an open mind about possible causes and treatments, and know you're not alone in the struggle.BDSM Sex Story: Chapter 1 - This is a story of the new doctor that I started going to because the one I had been going to for years, retired.
This doctor is a woman and right from the start she had her own agenda, which had nothing to do with the fact she was a doctor. My last pregnancy at 36 weeks, I was in preterm labour with strong contractions and had my son at 37 weeks (you can read more about this birth experience here) so this time at 35 weeks when the Braxton Hicks I had been experiencing started to become more painful I knew immediately that this was the start of preterm labour.
