PAPILLION DERMATITIS & SKIN RASHES
WHAT IS DERMATITIS?
Dermatitis is a common term used to describe any inflammation in the skin. There are many different types of conditions that can be associated with dermatitis. The most well-known dermatitis conditions are topic dermatitis (eczema), seborrheic dermatitis, and contact dermatitis. These particular skin conditions are most commonly characterized by redness, itchy skin, and hard, dry patches. Eczema is most common in young children, and also causes dry, itchy, and inflamed skin. Seborrheic dermatitis is mainly found on the scalp and is most commonly known as dandruff. Contact dermatitis is caused by an allergic reaction or coming into contact with an irritant such as poison ivy. MOD Dermatology in Papillion manages dermatitis and rashes with a variety of treatment methods.
Because there are many different types of dermatitis, it is important to have a specialist evaluate your symptoms to decide the best treatment. Dermatitis can bring about several different symptoms including dry skin, rashes, blisters, dandruff, redness, and more. At MOD Dermatology Papillion, we understand dermatitis and rashes can affect your self-esteem and want to help you eliminate these issues with treatment. We work with our clients to treat their specific conditions.
