DERMATITIS - DESCRIPTION


Contact allergic dermatitis (eczema) is caused by an allergic reaction of a person to substances that come into contact with the skin. In people who are hypersensitive, these contact allergens cause itching, redness, small blisters, and later flaking of the skin. In the acute phase of dermatitis, the skin becomes red and swollen, markedly itchy and small blisters appear on it that burst, forming scabs and white deposits that peel off. If the contact with the allergen is constant, chronic, the skin becomes thickened, dark red, sometimes brown in color, dandruff, painful cracks are created, and the itching is minimal, but constant or worsens in bursts.

The most common causes of eczema are food allergies and contact with already diseased skin, followed by digestive disorders, germs, stress, mental strain and fatigue, due to injections that can appear as a rash on the baby's head. The term neurodermatitis indicates the cause of the disease or a neural disorder.

The most common allergens are nickel, chromium, cobalt, mercury compounds, formaldehyde, detergents, plastics, cosmetics, medicines (contact in working with medicines), rubber, some food products (contact - celery, parsley, paprika, fish, etc.) and wood dust, flour, animal hair. It occurs on exposed parts of the body (face, neck, hands, feet, forearms). The skin is red and inflammatory altered as in acute non-allergic dermatitis. The most important thing is to find out the cause, ie the substance that causes the allergy. In order to detect the allergen responsible for the changes, epicutaneous testing is performed on standard allergens of the European series. In this series are allergens that most commonly cause allergies in Europe, and include a variety of substances, from metals found in jewelry, through dyes, preservatives or fragrances found in hair dyes and other cosmetics to substances found in some adhesives, cement, rubber and other substances that people come in contact with on a daily basis.

Certain self-help measures can effectively support medical treatment of the disease. Cortisone-containing agents, which are generally prescribed to treat this disease, should be avoided because of the contraindications they cause.
