Dermatitis Treatment and Natural Remedies

What is Dermatitis?

Dermatitis is an inflammation of the skin that can be the result of any number of skin conditions, but usually stems from allergic reactions. Symptoms may vary between different forms of dermatitis, and they can range from rashes to blisters but always include red skin, swelling, itching, and sometimes lesions, oozing, and scarring. Eczema is another common type of dermatitis, known as atopic dermatitis; eczema is a chronic condition where dermatitis is typically temporary. While dermatitis can be a miserable skin condition, there are many natural remedies for it that our readers have reported over the years.

What Causes Dermatitis?

Along with allergies, dermatitis can be caused by skin irritations from soap, laundry detergents, and bleach. Typical allergens that cause dermatitis can be rubber, metal in jewelry, cosmetics, and perfumes. The necessary level of exposure needed to cause an allergic reaction may be brief or prolonged, it depends on the person's sensitivity to the substance.
