What Are The Symptoms Of Dermatitis

In dermatitis, the skin becomes dry, itchy, red and sometimes swollen. However, there are different types of dermatitis affecting different parts of the body and exhibit varying symptoms.

Types of dermatitis and their symptoms:

  • Atopic dermatitis or eczema: Generally, children get atopic dermatitis in the first year. Skin becomes dry and has scaly patches. This may be seen on forehead, cheeks and scalp. Infants are often seen rubbing against the bedding to relieve themselves of the itching sensation. Sometimes excessive scratching can lead to skin infection.
  • Contact dermatitis: We get this type of dermatitis when something touches our skin and we get a rash. It can either be an allergen which causes the rash (poison ivy, nickel, jewellery, makeup) or an irritant (diaper rash, acid, and soaps). The skin shows an allergic or irritant reaction when it comes in contact with some substances. The skin may develop burns, blisters or may just be itchy.
  • Seborrheic dermatitis: This is commonly called cradle cap. Here the skin appears scaly and is greasy and reddish or yellowish in colour. This condition is seen in infants and appears on the scalp, face and genitals.
  • Statis dermatitis: This is caused due to poor blood circulation in legs. This causes swelling and may further lead to skin irritation, especially around the ankles.
  • Dyshidrotic eczema: This involves a group of skin problems in which the skin cannot protect itself which results in itchy, dry skin.
  • Nummular dermatitis: This generally appears after the skin has had an injury like an insect bite, a burn or an abrasion. The skin develops coin or oval-shaped sores which last for weeks or months.

Causes of diseases where CLEARZ MAX CREAM 15 GM is used

What Are The Causes Of Freckles

  • When skin is exposed to sun freckles, age spots, and other darkened skin patches can become darker or more prominent. It happens as melanin absorbs the energy of the sun's ultraviolet rays. Skin tanning occurs as the result of this process and areas that are already hyper pigmented get darkened. 

What Are The Causes Of Hyperpigmentation

  • Hyperpigmentation happens because of sun damage, and are also called as solar lentigines.
  • Changes in hormones are also responsible for pigmentation.

What Are The Causes Of Melasma

  • These appear most commonly due to hormonal changes (due to pregnancy etc.). It can trigger overproduction of melanin causing the "mask of pregnancy" on the face and darken skin on the abdomen and other areas.
  • Women taking birth control pills may also develop hyperpigmentation as their bodies undergo the similar type of hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy. If one is really concerned about the pigmentation, she should stop birth control pills.
  • Other causes of changes in skin colour are skin diseases like acne, injuries to the skin, surgeries marks.

What Are The Causes Of Dermatitis

Causes of dermatitis vary depending on the type of dermatitis.

  • Contact dermatitis: Happens when a person comes in contact with an irritant or an allergen.
  • Atopic dermatitis: This condition is caused by a combination of factors like environmental factors, dry skin, bacteria or genetic factors.
  • Seborrheic dermatitis: This is due to the presence of yeast in oil glands of the skin and gets worse in spring and winter season. This may be genetic in some people.
  • Statis dermatitis: Poor blood circulation in the skin, especially in the lower legs and feet causes this condition.

Some factors which are known to trigger episodes of dermatitis are:

  • Environmental changes.
  • Stress.
  • Hormonal imbalance.
  • Irritating substances.

What Are The Causes Of Eczema

Exact causes of eczema are still unknown, but it is often triggered by an overactive response by body’s immune system to an irritant. People who have the family history of certain allergies or asthma are more at risk of developing eczema.

Certain foods like nuts or dairy products can also trigger eczema. Environmental factors or pollens also trigger eczema in some patients.
