Alternative Treatment for Perioral Dermatitis?
I have been diagnosed with perioral dermatitis and was prescribed Solodyn. After taking the Solodyn for 3 weeks I began itching all over and had to discontinue use.
Since stopping Solodyn, my perioral dermatitis has returned. I plan to obtain a new antibiotic from my derm but I've had trouble getting hold of her.
My question is, if I'm allergic to solodyn, will I most likely be allergic to tetracycline. And, if so, are there antibiotics other than tetracyclines that are effective for perioral dermatitis?
Perioral dermatitis is a variant of acne rosacea
