hi. periorificial dermatitis can be really frustrating both for the clinician as well as the patient. follow the following steps:

1. stop using all cosmetics, sunscreens, moisturizers on your face and of course stop using steroids even if your dermatitis flares up initially.
2. use a mild cleanser like cetaphil.
3. use topical clindamycin gel twice daily.
4. oral doxycycline 100mg (nudoxy) twice daily would induce a remission in 2-3 weeks. continue it for 3-4 months
