Many factors can cause dermatitis conditions. The top causes of atopic dermatitis are aging, sensitive skin, germs, ecological variables, and immune system issues. Contact dermatitis is caused by a negative reaction to specific substances and products, such as detergents, soaps, jewelry, and cleaning chemicals. Seborrheic dermatitis symptoms can get worse or better, depending on the season. Because of this, scientists think this dermatitis may be linked to yeast found within the skin's oil secretion.
Due to the many types of dermatitis, symptoms can occur in a variety of ways. Usually starting in infancy, atopic dermatitis shows up as an itchy, red rash in the front part of the neck, behind the knees, and in the creases of the elbows. Contact dermatitis occurs when you make contact with a product that produces an allergic reaction or otherwise irritates your skin. This can look like a red rash that may itch, burn or sting, and possibly blister. With seborrheic dermatitis, red skin, scaly spots, and dandruff are typical.
Because every individual's dermatitis symptoms are unique, the treatment methods may differ considerably. An examination by Dr. Day can help determine the best course of treatment. Sometimes, Dr. Day can prescribe corticosteroid lotions to be applied on the affected regions. Some individuals find relief with calcineurin inhibitors, which are lotions or creams that can address underlying immune system problems. Other individuals benefit from light therapy. With light therapy, the skin is subjected to a specific quantity of light to help clear it.
