Dermatologist Dr. Gaurav Patel's  Response
u have perioral dermatitis.
u need to consult dermatologist
avoid direct sun light exposure
never apply steroid cream over that area.
apply metronidazole or ketoconazole cream over it twice a day.
take care during eating and brushing ,not to spill over mouth.
