Recently, I went to a dermatologist for red patches around my nose and chin. I was disgnosed with perioral dermatitis and was then prescribed with solodyn ( tetracycline ) and metro gel .75%. The doctor was in and out and not helpful with instructions. I have a fair amount of small whiteheads on my chin and she didn't specify if that was pod. I would like to know if I should apply metro gel here or if it will break me out worse. Also, besides this, I do not have acne and my skin is very clear with no other problems except a few hormonal pimples every once in a while. ( possibly the whiteheads??). The pod is very minor and no way severe but I would like to know.
