Contact Dermatitis

Contact dermatitis occurs when something touches the skin and the skin reacts to it by developing a rash. This condition can be due to an irritation (such as coming in contact to a detergent) or an allergy to a specific plant (such as poison ivy) or a chemical ingredient. By visiting a dermatologist a treatment plan will be initiated for you and the cause of the contact dermatitis may be determined.
