What Is Dermatitis?

Dermatitis is a medical term that describes a range of conditions that are caused by an inflammation of the skin.   The inflammation may be caused by allergies, environmental contaminants, botanical substances and many other sources.  Some common types of dermatitis are eczema, dandruff and rashes.

How Is Dermatitis Caused?

The specific cause of your dermatitis depends on the type of dermatitis that affects you.  Causes may include allergies, irritants or a genetic predisposition.  Dermatitis may be chronic, seasonal or temporary.

How Do You Know If You Have Dermatitis?

Even with the different types of dermatitis, the symptoms of red, swollen skin are common across all types of the condition.  Other symptoms may include blisters, rash, crusting, oozing, stinging and scales.

How Do We Treat Dermatitis?

The most common treatments for dermatitis are corticosteroids, wet compresses and light therapy.  Treatments may be creams or ointments, and, in some cases, Dr. Goldberg may recommend an allergy medication to address your sensitivity to airborne allergens.  During treatment, you should take care to not further irritate the area with abrasive cleansers or moisturizers that contain certain ingredients.

Is Dermatitis Contagious?

Typically, dermatitis is not contagious, especially if it is caused by allergens or botanical substances.  In some cases, dermatitis can spread to other parts of your body, though.  If you are concerned about having a contagious condition, please call our office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Goldberg.
