Dermatitis refers to an inflammation of the skin resulting from a variety of different causes.
Symptoms of dermatitis may include:
• Red rash, bumps or a burn-like rash on the skin
• Itchy, painful or burning skin
• Blisters and draining fluid
Two common types of dermatitis include atopic dermatitis (eczema) and contact dermatitis.
If dermatitis symptoms are making you miserable, an allergist / immunologist, often referred to as an allergist, can help. An allergist has advanced training and experience to determine what is causing your symptoms and prescribe a treatment plan to help you feel better and live better.
