The Perioral Dermatitis appear on babies' and children's skin from three months to five years old. Those irritations are due to the accumulation of saliva and of the amylase contained in it that will irritate the skin and make those small red spots on the skin. 

Perioral Dermatitis looks like acne, but with a red bumpy rash around the mouth, folds around the nose and can even spread until the eyes contour. 

Burning and itching can also be one of the symptoms, particularly when the rash worsens.

To treat Perioral Dermatitis, it is essential to keep the mouth and nose contour cleansed to avoid the accumulation of saliva, and so the irritations. To do so, you may follow this easy skin care routine daily:

  •  Cleanse: use a non-rinse water solution, such as ABCDerm H2O, to cleanse after eating or anytime you see an excess of saliva. 
  • Treat: Use ABCDerm Péri-Oral. Completely safe for your baby, it soothes irritations and repairs the mouth area to recover a healthy skin. Thanks to its Amylpriv™ patent, composed with Tamarind extract, it actively fights amylase, an enzyme present in saliva.

What should I do?

1. Cleansing

Bathe your baby up to three times a week.

2. Skincare

Apply ABCDerm Péri-Oral on all the inflammation around the mouth area to soothe irritation and repair the skin.

3. Everyday

Limit all sources of aggression and prevent Perioral dermatitis:

  • Avoid heavy cream, favour a gently light skincare cream such as ABCDerm Hydratant
  • Cleanse as often as possible the mouth contour to avoid the accumulation of saliva
  • Limit the contact of the skin with external factors (UV, wind, heat, ...) by protecting the skin with sun protection, such as Photoderm KID SPF 50+, and by covering the skin with clothes.

4. Complete diagnosis

Visit your nurse/paediatrician/dermatologist if you think the inflammation area is infected and need medical treatment.
