Wow! This thread is old...but does serve well as a nice follow up!!!
I never did order Squigle, however, I have recommended it to others and it's really 50/50 on the results. From a dental standpoint, some people say that it is definately better than OTC toothpaste.

Back on point,though, I have had almost a COMPLETE clearing of all perioral breakouts since last spring. I stuck with the sodium sulfacetamide cleanser and lotion (Plexion is the brand name) and I've had nearly next to no breakouts whatsoever! Not only that, but because of the VERY gentle sloughing properties, I've noticed a significant decrease in the redness and scarring. I also have maintained an almost milk and ice cream free diet and very little cheese. Also, no strawberries or espresso or lattes (I now drink instant cappuccino-it's actually pretty good!)...including chocolate covered espresso beans! :( I also avoided yogurt with higher than normal sugar content. Sugar seems to really set the condition off for me, I guess.
I found that those foods can cause an outbreak of cysts and redness AND itching beyond belief!!!

My best advice for you right now is to stay away from anything abrasive and really give your skin time to heal. Keep your hands off of your face and use a headset phone receiver as much as you can...invest in a blue tooth for your cell and get one for at home (or use speaker phone if it's not too inconvenient).

One thing that you said does confuse me somewhat...I am surprised at how aggressive the derm is being by trying the peel. Don't get me wrong, it may just work. However, I am skeptical of peels-even when done in the physician's office- because SA and Glycolic peels are notorious for causing a thinning of the epidermis and/or causing the skin to kind of purge itself; not to mention the fact that it is really irritating!

If it's not too much to ask, though, I am interested to know a little more about what type of job you have (very basic description only-office work, outdoors, around chemicals of any kind, etc...), what kind of diet do you have (you can be more specific on this-what does an average day consist of), taking any meds, any other non-related medical conditions, family history of skin ailments, and anything else that YOU think may be helpful. Just becasue a doctor seems disinterested in what you say, doesn't mean that it's not important! I found that to be resoundingly true in my own treatment!

If you get a chance to respond, I would be really interested to see what the consensus is. Also, I would sure like to know if anyone else had peels while experiencing the symptoms of Perioral Dermatitis.
