Dermatitis is among the most common skin issues and can affect adults and kids at any time of the year. As a matter of fact, OneSkin Dermatology treats patients with this condition year-round. Dermatitis is a basic term for a skin condition that could present itself in a number of distinct ways. The most obvious symptoms are flaky, crusty, itchy, red, and at times blistered skin. You may have heard of eczema, which is a common type of dermatitis, also called atopic dermatitis. However, there are other kinds, including seborrheic dermatitis and contact dermatitis. Particular health conditions, genetics, diet, materials, asthma, and allergies may lead to dermatitis. Board-certified dermatologist Rachel Day, M.D. can evaluate your skin in her Chambersburg, PA office, decide what's causing the breakout, and then recommend a proper therapy and a regimen to follow to prevent additional flare-ups.
"Dr. Day is AMAZING!!! I had a baby in November and my skin took a huge toll. Acne flared up and I didn’t know what to do anymore. So I broke down and made an appointment with OneSkin Dermotology. When I first met Dr. Day I was excited, when you see a young doctor you think of new medicine and new treatments. So I was really looking forward to see what my treatment plan would be. Not to mention, the office is BEAUTIFUL and relaxing! She made a wonderful plan for my skin and recommended drug store products that work just as good as the expensive ones! So far we are about a month and a half in and my skin is night and day difference and I am so pleased! We still have some work to do, but it looks amazing! Thank you to Dr. Day and her wonderful and kind team! 100% recommend! Worth the money, but honestly the price is totally affordable!"- C.S. / Google / Mar 06, 2020

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.
