Hi, I've been dealing with Perioral Dermatitis for 8 months straight it gets better at time with the medication but never actually clear completely. The first treatment that i got was minocycline 100mg/day for four months. The first three months it got better but was still there then on month 4 even if i was still on the antibiotic it came back full force. I then saw another dermatologist who prescribed me Elidel 1% to apply once a day.. It's been three months that I've been applying the cream and it got was better the first two weeks as if I was 100% clear though these past week my skin has been flaring up (having a flare-up as I'm typing this..). Another term suggested Soolantra (Ivermectin 1%) or Loprox (ciclopirox olamine 1%).. I am very scared to try those creme out because with my skin it either gets better right away and doesn't work after a while or gets extremely worse as soon as I apply.. Right now im doing the zero therapy (beside Elidel) and this is what seems to work best with my skin..Any moisturizer, toner, make-up or even gentle soap flares me up. I've never used steroid, I'm dairy and egg free (allergic), got gluten tested and im negative, SLS and fluorine free... Why am I still flaring up?? Could test be done in order to no if its fungal, bacterial or that my immune system is over reactive, can something be done?? I fell so self-contious and it's really affecting my confidence and my personal life.. HELP!!
