The Different Types of Dermatitis

Dermatitis is a generic term used to describe an inflammation of the skin. It may come in the form of rashes, skin redness, swelling or itchy skin. Although dermatitis is not a life-threatening condition, it can make you feel self-conscious and feel uncomfortable.

There are various types of dermatitis.

Atopic Dermatitis: When we speak of atopic, it means hereditary. Accordingly, if someone in your family has dermatitis, you might be at risk of developing this skin disorder. Atopic dermatitis is colloquially known as eczema a chronic skin rash that displays symptoms such as redness, swelling, itchiness and scaling of skin. A person with atopic dermatitis would have to refrain from scratching the inflamed skin to avoid gashes or abrasions.

Allergic Dermatitis (Contact Dermatitis): This type of dermatitis appears when the skin comes in contact with irritants or allergy-producing substances. To avoid allergic dermatitis, stay away from substances that trigger these allergic reactions, which may include skin inflammation, itching and swelling.

Nummular Dermatitis: This type of dermatitis usually starts out as small patches of blisters or pimples to form itchy lesions thereafter. Nummular dermatitis is characterized by redness, itching, and a burning sensation on the affected area.

Other types of dermatitis also include neurodermatitis a condition that is characterized by localized itchiness on certain parts of the skin. There's also what is known as seborrheic dermatitis a face and scalp itchy condition that is often associated with dandruff. Statis dermatitis is a condition that is associated with fluid buildup under the skin of the legs. Perioral dermatitis involves bumpy rashes around the mouth.
