Thank you for requesting me and providing such a complete history. Is it possible to forward photographs. It would be helpful to examine photos before, and during treatment besides photographs of your present state.

A few comments. I would not recommend erythromycin at all during pregnancy. In some of the older literature, this was considered acceptable. In fact when I was a resident, this was a good alternative. However, now it is regarded as teratogenic in that it can cause heart abnormalities and possibly pyloric stenosis. In fact, many physicians even fear this drug in non-pregnant patients as it can cause heart arrhythmias.
Long term usage of Oracea or Periostat is much safer and preferred since you can stay on this for years. It may even protect against heart attacks and work as an anti-aging treatment. However, if you are plannig to become pregnant you should not take this one either. However, if you do, stopping this in the first trimester should avert problems.
I agree with the physician that potent steroids should not have been used in your conditon. I usually reserve its use for something such as discoid lupus.
From the sounds of it, you might have had a case of stubborn seborrheic dermatitis. The treatment with steroids possibly transformed this into either perioral dermatitis or rosacea. You probably noteded this on the internet as steroid induced rosacea ( or peri-oral dermatitis). I can only really tell from the photographs when they arrive.
Topical sulfur would be a good treatment for you since it shows benefit both in rosacea, peri-oral dermatitis and seborrheic dermatitis. Whatsmore it can be used during pregnancy, if this happens. Also Finacea gel ) Azelaic Acid) helps all three conditions and is very safe during pregnancy.
I await the photographs and hopefully can give forth better and more specific advice.
I appreciate your patience but I have had a busy day. Again, I appreciate your requesting my services.
