If you’re one of the millions of people who suffer from contact dermatitis, you know how uncomfortable and frustrating it can be. The good news is that there are steps you can take to get rid of this condition fast and permanently.
First, it’s important to understand what contact dermatitis is. This type of dermatitis occurs when your skin comes into contact with an irritant or allergen. Common triggers include chemicals, soaps, detergents, jewelry, and latex. Contact with chemicals, such as those found in cleaning products or personal care products, can trigger an allergic reaction or irritate the skin. Nickel is a common allergen as well and can be found in many types of jewelry, especially cheaper costume jewelry. When this metal comes into contact with your skin, it can cause redness, swelling, and itchiness. In some cases, blisters may also form.
If you suspect that you have contact dermatitis, the first step is to identify the trigger and avoid it. This may seem simple, but it’s important to remember that even trace amounts of an allergen can cause a reaction. Identifying the trigger can seem daunting, especially when you realize how many chemicals, fragrances, and other irritants are in everyday products you use including shampoos, conditioners, soaps, hair dyes, moisturizers, nail polish, etc. Bernstein Allergy Group can help you properly identify the allergic trigger by performing patch testing in the office. This test takes place over a few days and can reliably identify contact allergens that are causing your chronic rash. Once we’ve identified the correct triggers, we will provide instructions to help you avoid accidental exposures in the future, allowing your skin to heal and get back to normal.
