Berloque Dermatitis (Pigmentation on Underarms, Neck, & Perfume Skin)
Berloque Dermatitis – what is it?
Berloque Dermatitis is a type of skin disorder in which patients develop a brownish to reddish discoloration of the neck and sometimes the arms because of applying cologne or perfume to the skin.
What can cause Berloque dermatitis?
Many perfumes and colognes may have oil of bergamot, an extract of the peel of a specific orange, in them. When this oil comes in contact with the skin and the skin is exposed to sunlight, the oil of bergamot causes the skin colour to change . With repeated exposures to sunlight, the discoloration becomes permanent.
What is the treatment of Berloque Dermatitis?
- Avoid applying perfoume to sun exposed skin.
- Depigmenting Agents
- Tretinoin cream
- Daily sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher
- Laser treatment may be an effective treatment in the future
What is the prognosis?
After a period of several months, the dermatitis may subside, even if not treated.
What would be the cost of treatment for Berloque dermatitis?
The treatment cost varies depending upon the type of treatment that is followed. Since laser treatment requires multiple sessions, it may come up to be a bit expensive as compared to other modes of treatment.
In general, a consultation with Dr. Rinky Kapoor may cost about INR 1000/-.
