How does the Orlando Dermatology Center diagnose Contact Dermatitis?

Almost everyone gets this type of eczema at least once. We get contact dermatitis when something that our skin touches causes a rash. Some rashes happen immediately. Most take time to appear.

Allergic:

  • Poison ivy
  • Makeup you applied once or few times
  • Jewelry you wore for a long time without a reaction, such as a wedding ring
  • Jewelry you wore for only a few hours or days
  • Latex gloves

Irritant:

  • Diaper rash
  • Acid burn
  • Dry, cracked hands due to lots of contact with water
  • Irritated skin around the mouth due to lip licking

When a toxic substance touches our skin, the skin is quickly irritated. Skin reacts to a toxic substance like:

  • Battery acid
  • Bleach
  • Pepper spray

You can also develop irritant contact dermatitis when you have lots of contact with less irritating substances like:

  • Water
  • Foods
  • Soap

 

When a rash does not clear within a few weeks, you should see a dermatologist.When contact dermatitis develops, treatment is important. It can prevent the contact dermatitis from worsening and help your skin heal.
