BELLEVUE DERMATITIS & SKIN RASHES
WHAT IS DERMATITIS?
Dermatitis is a general term used for any skin irritation that normally causes rashes or dry skin. The actual word means “inflammation of the skin.” Two of the most common examples of dermatitis are atopic dermatitis (also known as eczema) and seborrheic dermatitis (also known as dandruff). Neither of these common conditions are contagious. Dermatitis doesn’t discriminate by age or gender. There are certain drugstore creams and shampoos that can be used to treat symptoms, but we recommend seeing a dermatologist, especially if your symptoms persist. MOD Dermatology in Bellevue manages dermatitis and rashes with a variety of treatment methods.
If you have itchiness, dry skin, rashes, blisters, and dandruff, you might have some form of dermatitis. While these symptoms don’t always cause an immediate problem, they can be uncomfortable. Our Bellevue office understands dermatitis and rashes can affect your self-esteem and want to help you eliminate these issues with treatment.
