How to eradicate the symptoms of dermatitis
Dermatitis is a nasty skin condition that often leaves the sufferer with horrendously irritated skin. The inflammation and irritation can be nullified if treated correctly. However, the biggest reason this is not effectively treated lies within the vast lack of knowledge the general public has towards the condition. Like most medical issues, if you want eradicate the symptoms, you must first understand the problem. Once you can determine the type of dermatitis you posses, the most efficient solutions become clear and similarly other treatment methods become useless or irrelevant.
So how does one begin to understand the complexities of dermatitis? First let's break it down from the top then understanding the differing types becomes much easier. Once we learn to isolate the particular type of dermatitis possessed, the best course of treatment can be diagnosed.
STEP 1: UNDERSTANDING DERMATITIS
One of the most common skin conditions is dermatitis, which is also known as eczema. It is usually caused by exposure to an allergic reaction or irritating chemicals. As a result of the reaction or irritation, the skin often becomes red, swollen or blistered, and intensely itchy. Dermatitis is an umbrella term used to associate various skin inflammations.
STEP 2: DIFFERENTIATING COMMON FORMS OF DERMATITIS
CONTACT DERMATITIS: The most frequent cause of contact dermatitis is reactionary contact with irritating chemicals such as detergents, solvents, acids, and skin cleansers, or it may be triggered by an allergic reaction to gels, lotions, antiseptics in hand creams and bleach. Usually such outbreaks remain for as long as the skin is exposed to the irritant or allergic, but the inflammation may stay for up to 6 weeks. To alleviate the redness and itching moisturizers can be used to soften and add moisture to the skin, improving dryness and scaling. A riskier solution is to apply corticosteroid creams or ointments, but there are often severe side effects associated with their use.
ATOPIC DERMATITIS: Atopic dermatitis is another common form. Although common in babies and young children, it can persist through adulthood. Atopic dermatitis causes a pinkish-red, scaly rash that can get lumpy, weepy and crusty. In adult cases this is found mostly in the elbows, behind the knees, and/or on wrists and hands. It is a condition that can't be cured, only managed. Therefore it is best to avoid the use of soaps, while applying moisturizers to alleviate the dry itchy skin. Some health professionals identify corticosteroid creams and ointments as a useful solution, but the severe risks associated must be seriously considered.
STEP 3: THE BEST FORM OF TREATMENT - NATURAL SKIN BALMS
With the perplexities of dermatitis now removed, what does this mean for you? You are now armed with the correct tools for eradicating the terrible dryness, irritation, and itchiness that the condition causes. With the dangerous side effects of corticosteroid creams and ointments identified, the safest treatment plan should be centered around natural skin balms.
