Dermatitis

Dermatitis is a medical term for inflammation of the skin.  It can be used to describe many conditions including allergic contact dermatitis, irritant dermatitis, eczema or dry itchy skin.

The doctors at Morristown Dermatology can help determine the underlying cause of your skin condition by listening to how your rash started, taking a thorough medical and family history, and examining the involved areas of your skin.  Since contact dermatitis can best be prevented by avoiding the substance causing the allergic reaction or the skin irritation Patch testing (allergy testing) may be recommended.

Based on your doctor’s findings a course of treatment tailored to your needs can be prescribed.
