Periobital dermatitis is a rash that occurs around the eyes. The photo depicts a case of the condition in a young woman. Reddish micropapules and small papulovesicles are apparent on the skin around the eyes. Allergic contact dermatitis, atopic eczema, airborne contact dermatitis, and irritant contact dermatitis may cause the condition. Less frequently, rosacea, allergic conjunctivitis, or psoriasis vulgaris may cause periorbital dermatitis.
