Brief Answer:
Perioral dermatitis

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query.
Your symptoms are suggestive of perioral dermatitis.
It is an allergic condition and can be treated easily.
I treat such cases with topical steroid creams like fluticasone.
It gives excellent response in a week.
You can try this in consultation with your doctor.
Also take an antihistamine tablet.
Let me know if you have any other doubt.
Thank you
