Perioral dermatitis occurs mainly in young women, characterized by discrete erythematous micropapules and micropapulovesicles that often become confluent on the perioral and periorbital skin. Note presence of tiny papules and a few pustules around the eye. This is a much less common site than the lesions around the mouth.
