Perioral Dermatitis – It Seems Clove is Helping to Heal My Friend’s Skin Issue
First of all, I’m not a doctor. Two, I’m not pretending to be, or posing as an expert, but I looked and looked online and could find no real useful information, yet my friend’s Perioral Dermatitis is healing after he started using a particular product.
You can run a search on Perioral Dermatitis and find a lot of information, no question there. Like, What is Perioral Dermatitis?, causes, symptoms. Again, not an expert, but this is what happened to my friend.
He started developing a redness at the corners of his mouth. He stopped using the chapstick he’d been using for a long time (in case that was the issue). He stopped using any topical ointments except coconut oil, which has a lot of natural benefits as a skin moisturizer. All of the information on Perioral Dermatitis states to stop using topical ointments and nasal prays that contain steroids. For weeks he only moisturized with 100% pure coconut oil and it got worse for a bit, but I’d also read that it can get worse before it gets better.
Then he started using Burt’s Bees Clove lip balm. Layers of red, scaly skin started to peel away right after he started using it. Now, it looks like they don’t make it anymore, but it’s still for sale by certain Amazon and eBay dealers. You still have to defer to a professional on all health-related issues – always! – but since no one had really put that out there – that I could find anyway – there it is. A real experience from someone who experienced all the symptoms of Perioral Dermatitis and watched it disappear using Burt’s Bees Burt’s Medicated Lip Balm with Clove Oil.
