Perioral dermatitis (PD), a common acneiform facial eruption, was first described in the 1950s. The terms “light-sensitive seborrheid” and “steroid-induced rosacea-like dermatitis” were previously used to describe this condition [1,2]. Given the now recognized periorbital, perinasal, and perioral distribution of lesions, the term periorificial dermatitis may be most appropriate .
