Dermatitis is a term to describe a broad range of skin conditions that cause a red, inflammation of the skin. The source of dermatitis is usually due to an allergic reaction from contact with something in the environment. It can also come from lotions, certain foods, and other factors.

What Causes Dermatitis?

Dermatitis is typically the body’s response to something with which has come into contact such as allergies and irritants. Those who suffer from dermatitis may do so seasonally, temporarily or conditionally.

What Does Dermatitis Look Like?

For the most part, when you have dermatitis, you have a raised patch of skin that is red and itches. For more serious cases, it can be blistered or even ooze and become crusty.

How Do You Treat Dermatitis?

The most common way to treat dermatitis is with topical prescription creams and light therapy if it is more severe. Seasonal dermatitis outbreaks may require an allergy medication to prevent the dermatitis from being present. Following a proper diagnosis, we will discuss the best treatment options as well as steps to prevent further irritation.
