Dermatitis

In its simplest terms, Dermatitis means skin inflammation. Depending on the symptoms or causes, the inflammation associated with dermatitis may be classified into different categories. 

A common type of dermatitis is atopic dermatitis, also known as eczema. It is prevalent in children, but may also develop later in life. It is characterized by itchy, irritated skin and small blisters that may ooze, or as crusted, thickened plaques of skin. The symptoms tend to flare and subside over time and have been linked to allergies, though avoidance of these allergens may not always help ease the symptoms. 

Contact dermatitis has similar symptoms and occurs when skin is exposed to an irritating substance and is characterized by a red, itchy rash. This type of dermatitis can be remedied by avoiding the irritating substance completely, and the rash should clear up within 2- 4 weeks. 

Many suffer from seborrheic dermatitis, which usually affects the skin of the scalp, or oily areas of the body, such as the face, upper chest and back. It causes scaly patches, red skin and stubborn dandruff. In children this type of dermatitis is typically called cradle cap. 

Dermatitis may also be brought on by the presence of parasites under the skin. A common example of a parasitic dermatitis is called swimmer's itch. Swimmer's itch occurs when microscopic parasites found in shallow water burrow within the skin, causing an allergic reaction and itchy rash. Symptoms usually clear within a few days, as humans are not a suitable host for these parasites.
