Dermatitis is one of the most common skin conditions that can affect men, women, and children at any time of year. Dermatitis is a general term for a condition that could present itself in a number of distinct ways. The most common symptoms include skin that is flaky, crusty, itchy, red, and sometimes blistery. Eczema is a form of dermatitis that is referred to as atopic dermatitis. But there are also other kinds, such as seborrheic dermatitis and contact dermatitis. Certain health conditions, diet, genetics, fabrics, allergies, and asthma can cause dermatitis. Seasoned dermatologist Dr. Rex or one of her skilled practitioners will assess your skin, determine what is causing the breakout, and recommend a proper treatment, as well as a regimen to follow to avoid further flare-ups.
Since every patient’s dermatitis symptoms vary, the treatments can differ significantly and will be determined once Dr. Rex entirely assesses your ailment. In some cases, Dr. Rex may prescribe corticosteroid ointments to be used on affected areas. Some patients benefit from calcineurin inhibitors, which are creams or lotions that could correct immune system problems that result in symptoms. Other patients benefit from light therapy remedies where the skin is exposed to a certain amount of light to soothe the skin.
