My 23 month old was treated 2 months ago for what her pediatrician believed to be perioral dermatitis that was under her mouth and then under her eye. We put her on antibiotics after trying to clear it up ourselves for almost a month. The antibiotics cleared it right up. This morning, however, it looks like it's back around her mouth. I really don't want to put her on another 30-day round of antibiotics. I am not sure what to try though. All of the common causes don't apply to her. She doesn't use a pacifier, we keep her face clean and she is bathed every day, we use Earth Mama Angel Baby products on her, she takes a multivitamin and a probiotic, etc. Right now I am just putting Earth Mama Angel Baby Bottom Balm on it. Do any of you have ideas on what to use or what is causing this? Her doctor is quick to prescribe antiobiotics and doesn't care to find an alternative or cause. Thanks!
