Topical corticosteroids are the primary treatment for psoriasis. A patient with psoriasis being treated with topical fluocinonide for lesions on the extremities developed an erythematous facial eruption consistent with perioral dermatitis. When topical agents are applied, they often end up in unintended areas. The potential for drug-induced perioral dermatitis should be considered in psoriasis patients treated with potent topical corticosteroids.
