Wait what? Seriously? How ironic for you to be saying she has no credit to be talking about skincare because she doesn’t shower everyday, considering that #1. showering everyday is actually unnecessary because it usually (depending on the products you use) strips your skin of natural oils, #2. not showering everyday is not fucking “unhygienic” or “yucky,” but good job buying into the misleading beliefs made by skincare/hygiene companies (you must be one of those people who also thinks its a good thing if your skin feels super tight after cleansing…poor thing). And #3 what the hell does being a woman have to do with anything? “You’re a woman so you have to be prim and proper and smell like a delicate rose” are you from the fucking 19th century? Get that shit out of here. Just yuck. *micdrop*
A dermatologist diagnoses perioral dermatitis by examination. No other tests are usually done. The first step in treating perioral dermatitis is to discontinue all topical steroid creams , even non-prescription hydrocortisone. Once the steroid cream is discontinued, the rash appears and feels worse for days to weeks before it starts to improve. Heavy face creams should also be stopped. One must resist the temptation to apply any of these creams to the face when this happens. Think of the face as a cream junkie that needs a "fix"- one needs to go "cold-turkey".
