Dermatitis

Dermatitis is inflammation of the skin with symptoms that may include itchiness, redness, skin rash, blisters and scales. There are several types of dermatitis with the most common including:

Contact dermatitis – a pink/red itchy rash which may be caused by irritants or allergies.
Atopic dermatitis, also known as eczema, usually runs in families and can be associated with allergies, asthma and stress. Symptoms include dry, itchy, red or cracked skin, which may also blister.

Statis dermatitis – may be caused by circulatory conditions or varicose veins which cause a buildup of fluid in the lower legs which restricts blood and oxygen flow. This may result in open sores, swelling, itching and a thickened, discoloured skin on the ankles and lower legs.

Seborrheic dermatitis – commonly found on oily parts of the body such as the face, scalp and chest, it also known as cradle cap on babies. Symptoms may include dandruff, redness, itchiness and yellowish scaly patches.
