SIERRA ALLERGY ASTHMA AND SINUS CENTER

Contact Dermatitis is a common skin condition characterized by inflammation of the skin resulting from direct contact with irritants or allergens.

Symptoms of contact dermatitis can include redness, itching, swelling, and sometimes blistering or oozing of the affected area.

Irritant contact dermatitis occurs when the skin is exposed to harsh chemicals or substances that damage the outer layer of the skin, while allergic contact dermatitis occurs when the immune system reacts to specific allergens, such as metals, latex, or certain plants like poison ivy.

Accurate diagnosis and management of contact dermatitis are essential for relieving symptoms and preventing recurrences.

Our allergists specialize in evaluating and managing contact dermatitis through a comprehensive assessment of potential triggers, including patch testing to identify specific allergens.

We provide personalized treatment plans tailored to each patient’s unique needs, which may include topical corticosteroids, antihistamines, or other medications to relieve symptoms and reduce inflammation.

Additionally, we offer education on identifying and avoiding irritants or allergens to prevent future flare-ups of contact dermatitis.
