L71.0 – Perioral dermatitis
Perioral dermatitis (including steroid rosacea) is a localized inflammatory disorder of uncertain etiology. It manifests as an erythematous papular and pustular eruption with fine scaling involving the nasolabial folds, chin, and upper lip. It is seen almost exclusively in women aged between 18 and 40. A number of factors have been implicated in causing this condition, but medications such as topical glucocorticoids (including inhalers) and oral contraceptives are frequent etiologies.
