Dermatitis is a term that can be used to refer to a variety of different skin irritation concerns. Dermatitis differs from person to person, so while one individual may experience skin that blisters, another might find they are suffering from an itchy rash.

Dermatitis is a non-contagious skin condition that most commonly appears on the face and hands, though it can develop anywhere on the body. It can result in:

  • Blisters
  • Dry skin
  • Cracked and thickened skin
  • Red patches on light skin or darker patches on dark skin

What Causes: Dermatitis

Dermatitis can occur due to many causes but is largely as a result of either your genetics, in response to environmental triggers, or because of your immune system overreacting. It could also be a combination of some or all three. Dermatitis is a common skin condition and can be split into three categories:

   • Atopic Dermatitis (Eczema)
   • Seborrheic Dermatitis
   • Contact Dermatitis

Atopic dermatitis is the most common variant of dermatitis. Some people are more susceptible to developing dermatitis – for instance, if you are prone to eczema, you may find you are more likely to develop contact dermatitis.
