Dermatitis convers a number of skin conditions, which result in irritation, blisters and itchy rashes presenting in the sufferer. Dermatitis is treatable, however, the root cause must be identified for treatment to prove effective. Medical treatments will alleviate the condition, but illuminating the cause, if possible, is a much better option.
Atopical Dermatitis Causes and Treatment
Atopic dermatitis is more commonly known as eczema. The condition is usually caused by allergies. However, atopical dermatitis can also develop as a result of asthma or stress. This type of dermatitis tends to affect a number of members of the same family, which means there is a hereditary cause, too.
Treating eczema involves rehydrating the skin through carefully administered treatments of skin emollients and steroids. Moisturizing the skin will help reduce inflammation and itchiness, which will prevent you from causing further damage to the skin through scratching. Steroids and anti-inflammatory medicines will reduce inflammation and take away the urge to scratch the blisters.
Contact Dermatitis Causes and Treatment
Contact dermatitis presents as irritation, swelling, or blistering of the skin. There are two typical causes of contact dermatitis. Irritants such as clothes, cleaning agents or jewelry are common causes of contact dermatitis. Secondly, in some cases the condition stems from an allergic reaction. Certain plants, such as daffodils and tulips are also a known cause of contact dermatitis. Given that there are so many possible causes for contact dermatitis, it is often difficult to identify the exact cause.
