slightly red, burning circular area on chin
So, I know I have a mild case of seb derm which I have been treating successfully with raw, organic honey masks and born to be mild cleanser (just started this).  But, I think I might have a case of perioral dermatitis on my chin because this area does not seem to be improving well with raw honey masks and born to be mild cleanser.  It's a irritated, slightly red and burning circular area right on my chin which comes and goes.  Right now it's fairly bad.  What does this sound like?  Born to be mild cleanser is supposed to help this condition as well but so far no luck (however, I have only used it twice so far).  Also, today there are a couple tiny whiteheads throughout this area, but usually it's only red and burning.

Hello,
It can be due to contact dermatitis, infected hair follicles or perioral dermatitis. Treatment consists of oral antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs. A mild soap or soap substitute, such as Dove or Cetaphil should be used for washing. Scrubbing should be avoided. If the symptoms persist then please get it examined from a dermatologist.
I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
