I tried almost everything and finally used a turmeric paste that was made of turmeric and manuka honey. I made a small amount and put the paste all over the area that I had PD. I did this 2 or 3 times a day and left it on for hours. With in a week it had completely cleared up. I had tried everything and had had the breakout for about 3 months. This worked great. It did take a full week to clear up, but it is completely healed now.

Is it equal amounts of turmeric and honey?

A quick post to share AWESOME healing news! After trying nearly every natural option out there for Perioral Dermatitis (worst part is around my eyes) as well as hydrocortisone cream which made things worse as everyone else reports as well! - don't do it!! - I think I found a miracle! Turmeric, raw honey and yogurt mask. I've done many raw honey and yougurt masks with no effect. My PD was getting worse- and terrible around my eyes. Yesterday morning I did this mask with Turmeric. By last night there was 40% improvement. I did another mask before bed and this morning I woke up and my PD is literally almost gone!

NOTE: don't leave this mask on too long or you might notice a bit of yellowish staining on your skin. I left my for 15-20 minutes; I'm fair skinned, and with a slight amount of rubbing while rinsing, no stains. And almost NO PD!!! Hallelujah!

I hope this helps for others. I know how terrible and frustrating it is to deal with this issue. I haven't seen anything about using Turmeric in the hundreds if not thousands of posts I've read about PD. I saw it as a help/cure for acne, rosacea, and eczema and thought I'd give it a try.

I hope it helps someone else too!
