Dermatitis is a term used to describe several types of inflammation of the upper layer of the skin. Its symptoms include itching, flaking, crusting, scaling, and thickening of the skin.
Types and Symptoms
Atopic dermatitis is a severe form of dermatitis, characterized by chronic itching and inflammation of the skin. It most commonly occurs in individuals with a family history of allergic disorders such as asthma, hay fever, and milk allergies.
Chronic dermatitis of the hands and feet, or a generalized dermatitis that affects wide areas of the skin with extreme scaling, are other forms of dermatitis.
Contact dermatitis is an inflammation produced by substances that touch the skin, such as direct irritants and allergy-causing substances, as well as exposure to light.
Nummular dermatitis produces coin-shaped red bumps that cause intense itching. It most often occurs in middle-age people who are under stress and is most likely to occur in the winter.
Seborrheic dermatitis refers to an inflammation of the scalp or face, and, in rare cases, on the sternum (breastbone).
*Dermatitis is also sometimes referred to as eczema.
Dermatitis is most frequently caused by food allergies, contact allergies (makeup, nickel and other metals in jewelry, perfumes, creams), or toxic plant allergies such as poison ivy or poison oak.
If the allergy-causing factors of dermatitis are not removed and/or the affected area of the skin is excessively scratched, the dermatitis may spread and become very severe. Gastrointestinal problems such as parasites should also be screened for.
In order to properly treat dermatitis, it is important to identify and eliminate food allergies and other allergy-causing substances. Follow a gluten-free diet with no wheat, oats, rye, or barley. Also avoid dairy foods, especially cow`s milk, as many studies have shown this to be another major culprit food. In addition, eat lots of sauerkraut and naturally fermented foods.
