User rating for this question
Hello, I have a mild case around one corner of my mouth of perioral dermatitis I also have a history of eczema although break outs are few now as I get older (61) I have tried anti fungal OTC meds, Lamisil, bactroban, zinc oxide to no success I also used betnovate sparingly but of course, made it worse after a few weeks is there another type of topical cream I could use without resorting to oral antibiotics?
