DERMATITIS

There are many types of dermatitis. Symptoms can vary depending on the type of dermatitis you have.

  • Contact dermatitis, caused by exposure to an irritant or allergic reaction, typically shows up as a red, itchy rash that is limited to the area of skin exposed to the substance.
  • Nummular dermatitis, common in people who have dry    skin or live in dry environments, shows up as red, itchy, circular patches of weeping, scaly, or crusted skin.
  • Seborhic dermatitis called cradle cap in infants, causes greasy, yellowish scales on the scalp and eyebrows, behind the ears, and around the nose.
  • Stasis dermatitis causes scaling and swelling of the lower legs. Sometimes ulcerated or open skin appears inside the lower legs and around the ankles.
  • Atopic dermatitis(eczema) can cause extreme, persistent skin itchiness. However, many times, itchiness results simply from dry skin.Call 9004839333 for appointments at our clinics at Malad,Juhu and Bandra in Mumbai.
