Once And For All, What Exactly Is Dermatitis?

November 16, 2015 by Lisa Fogarty
shefinds | beauty

If your skin looks and feels irritated more often than not, or if you suffer from unpredictable bouts of redness and dry patches that appear out of nowhere and aren’t helped by regular OTC creams and cleansers, you could suffer from a skin condition called dermatitis. Dermatitis is an umbrella term that encompasses several skin problems you’ve probably heard of including eczema and rosacea. It can be the bane of your existence, though letting it rule your life isn’t necessary. Dr. Tsippora Shainhouse, a dermatologist at Rapaport Dermatology of Beverly Hills, is here to explain what causes various types of dermatitis and what you can do to ease the discomfort and inflammation.

“Dermatitis is a general term that dermatologists give to inflammation of the skin,” Shainhouse says. “It can be triggered by irritation, allergies, autoimmune conditions and skin infections (fungal, bacterial, viral). It usually presents as a pink, irritated area of skin, but it can be itchy or burning, red, scaly, pimply, greasy or blistered.”

Since dermatitis is such a broad category, Shainhouse focused on some of the most common forms of dermatitis, their causes and dermatologist-recommend solutions. Click below to learn more about the different types of dermatitis.

Eczema

Rosacea

Perioral Dermatitis

Seborrheic Dermatitis (Dandruff/Cradle Cap)
