Contact Dermatitis

A skin rash and irritation that arises when your skin interacts with particular substances, leading to inflammation.

What is it?

If you contract contact dermatitis, the offending substances can vary from cleaning agents and soaps to certain flora, like poison ivy or poison oak. This response results in reddened, itchy and frequently sore rashes on the skin areas that come into contact with the irritants. The condition is neither infectious nor fatal, but it can be distressing and — at times — painful. 

There are primarily two forms of contact dermatitis- allergic contact dermatitis (your skin’s reaction to an allergen in the air or on a surface) and irritant contact dermatitis (caused by irritants, soaps, detergents, solvents and regular contact with water). Our board-certified dermatology providers are skilled at treating your immediate symptoms and helping pinpoint the root cause of your contact dermatitis, helping prevent future outbreaks.

How is it treated?

After an accurate diagnosis, our team will prescribe a treatment plan specific to your specific type of contact dermatitis. Treatments may encompass topical ointments to alleviate inflammation, oral drugs to control symptoms and advice on evading problematic substances in the future. Additionally, our team will offer guidance on preventative measures like utilizing mild, hypoallergenic skincare products and shielding your skin from known irritants.

Our dermatologists are here to help with immediate contact dermatitis relief and a long-term plan. Our offices are conveniently located in Farmington Hills, Shelby Township, Clinton Township, Warren and St. Claire Shores, Michigan.

We would love to get started on a solution that perfectly fits your needs.
