GRETNA DERMATITIS & SKIN RASHES
WHAT IS DERMATITIS?
Dermatitis is a general term used to describe a number of conditions that cause skin inflammation. These conditions are typically characterized by itchiness and rashes. It can affect a small part of the body or it can be spread all over. The most common dermatitis conditions are atopic dermatitis (also known as eczema) and seborrheic dermatitis (also known as dandruff).
Depending on which condition of dermatitis you might have, the symptoms could be a range of things. The most common symptoms include dry skin, red rashes, itchiness, swelling, and burning skin. If your symptoms start to cause distress, you most likely need to seek a medical professional. Our dermatologists at MOD Dermatology (a skin surgery center in Gretna) have years of experience working with patients who struggle with dermatitis.
