What is Dermatitis?
Dermatitis is a general term encompassing various inflammatory skin conditions. It is characterized by itching, redness, thickening and scaling of the skin and skin eruptions.
The most common form of dermatitis is Atopic Eczema, a general allergic, hyper-sensitivity to allergens. Most Orange County patients think of any skin eruption with itching or redness as a skin rash – when there are actually many types of dermatitis and many causes. Regardless of the term used, or reason, a skin reaction can be extremely distressing, uncomfortable and for some may lead to skin infection. If simple over-the-counter measures don’t work quickly, it is best to have any skin rash diagnosed by a dermatologist.
Eczema can be caused by:
- Contact with substances that chemically aggravate the skin like detergents, soaps, engine oils, strong chemicals, etc.
- Stress, dry weather or, hot or cold temperatures.
- Environmental allergens.
