Types of Dermatitis:
Dermatitis is inflammation of the various levels of the dermis which is the second layer of the skin. The dermis contains sweat glands, blood vessels and nerves to provide sensations of pleasure, pain, pressure, itch, or temperature. The dermis is composed of tissue types of collagen, elastic tissue, and reticular fibers. Any rash or inflammation such as psoriasis, eczema, skin cancer, seborrhea, etc. is dermatitis. Specific types of dermatitis are as follows: allergic contact dermatitis which is a delayed hypersensitivity reaction involving allergens and antibodies, contact dermatitis is due to exposure to irritating chemicals or detergents, atopic dermatitis which is an allergic reaction that is accompanied by hay fever, asthma, and very dry skin.
The cause of dermatitis is either direct skin contact, or an allergic reaction to an irritant in the environment. The "dermis" of the skin is the outer layer that is irritated and is the origin of the word 'Dermatitis'.
Allergic contact dermatitis is a red, itchy, weepy reaction where the skin has come into contact with a substance that the immune system recognizes as foreign, such as poison ivy or certain preservatives in creams and lotions. Red, bumpy, scaly, itchy, and swollen skin are all symptoms which can signify an allergic skin condition. These skin problems are often caused by an immune system reaction, signifying an allergy. Allergic skin conditions can take several forms and are due to various causes.
Atopic Dermatitis affects 15 million people and is usually accompanied by asthma and hay fever. The symptoms of Atopic Dermatitis vary from person to person but generally include itchy, dry skin, a red or pinkish colored rash, thickening of the skin, cracks behind the ears; and rashes on the cheeks, arms, and legs and in some cases scarring of the skin.
The symptoms of atopic dermatitis can be altered by the itch-scratch response pattern, which can result in red, scaling skin. It may also develop into a condition known as lichenification in which the skin develops a thick and leathery surface as a result of constant scratching and rubbing. Lichenification also known as neurodermatitis may appear as small and flat areas called plaques of various sizes, 1 to 10 inches in diameter. These areas have definite margins that have become thick and assume a leather-like or lichenified appearance. Lichenification may occur when something such as a tight garment rubs or scratches your skin. This irritation may lead you to rub or scratch your skin repeatedly. Common locations include ankles, wrist, outer forearm or arm, and the back of your neck.
Another result of the cycle of itching and scratching is the development of small raised skin bumps or papules on the skin. If the papules are scratch or irritated enough, they will begin to weep a clear fluid with resulting crusty areas on the skin. Atopic dermatitis may possibly cause problems of the eye lid, eye socket, eye lashes, as well as eye brows.
Severe atopic dermatitis can also cause eye complications, which may lead to permanent eye damage. Signs and symptoms of eye complications also include blepharitis - which causes eye watering and inflammation of the eyelid. These ocular symptoms can be very similar to ocular rosacea. Because dermatitis and rosacea can occur together it's important to be able to distinguish whether your facial skin condition is atopic dermatitis or rosacea. People who live in urban areas and in climates with low humidity seem to have an increased risk for developing atopic dermatitis.
Dermatitis Herpetiformis also known as Duhring's Disease, is an intensely itchy blistering skin condition. Dermatitis Herpetiformis is so named because the skin inflammation and blisters are very similar in appearance to an outbreak of herpes.
The Dermatitis Herpetiformis rash occurs in three stages of development. In the initial stage, the skin appears to have is a slight discoloration at the site where the lesions will appear. An intense itching and burning are the first symptoms to be felt, and may occur up to 12 hours before the rash becomes visible. The first visible signs are the small papules that resemble red bumps or blisters.
In the middle stage, these discolored skin lesions change into groups or patches of blisters and papules. The blisters can vary in size from very small up to 1 cm across or .394 inch across which is roughly 4/10 of an inch. As the blisters develop, itching and burning may persist to up to 10 days, when they finally begin to crust. The blisters tend to appear in a symmetrical pattern on the buttocks, back of neck, shoulders, scalp, elbows, knees, back and, may be present on the lower end of the spinal column, and within the mouth. The rash rarely occurs on other mucous membranes, excepting the mouth or lips. Sometimes when they appear on the face and along the hair line, the red papules may be mistaken for stage two rosacea.
In the final stage of development the healing begins and the groups of blisters are marked by a change in the color of the skin, in which the skin will skin turn darker or lighter than the color of the skin on the rest of the body.
Seborrheic Dermatitis can appear anywhere on the body, it also can appear in more than one location on the body as well. The most common locations are as follows:
So why are these, the most common locations? Well to simply put it, these locations are high in oil glands. You may also have experienced periods, where these locations are worse in by seasons, change in body/hair soaps, laundry soap, just to name a few.
Nummular dermatitis is coin-shaped lesion on the skin. That can vary from a reddish spot to a blister-like sire that can weep fluid. These lesions can vary in size from about 1 inch to 4 inches. Nummular dermatitis usually effects people between the ages of 55-65, but can appear as early as 20.
Nummular dermatitis is still unknown what the exact cause, but there is some evidence that point to some triggers. These are some common triggers, which are known to make the nummular dermatitis worse:
It is also common to see a family history of allergies or asthma play a role in nummular dermatitis. Some patients may need to avoid item such as rubber or nickel. These have been found to be a trigger as well.
Some of the first symptoms of Stasis Dermatitis are the itching, red and very dry areas of the skin. Other symptoms can include achiness in the legs or the legs feel really heavy and hard to move. The skin can also have brown spots as well. This affects the ankles and legs.
Stasis Dermatitis is from Venous insufficiency condition, which the flow of blood through the veins is impaired, and the blood doesn't make it back to the heart. Some people that have venous insufficiency develop stasis dermatitis. Blood pools in the veins of the lower leg. This fluid and blood can start to leak out of the veins into the skin.
Perioral dermatitis patients have rashes or bumps around the mouth and lower nose area as well as sometimes the forehead and eyes. The exact cause of perioral dermatitis is not truly understood yet, but patients who have oily skin are at greater risk of getting perioral dermatitis. Some research has suggested that perioral dermatitis could be linked to proliferating bacteria in the hair follicles.
When perioral dermatitis affects the eyes, this is called periocular dermatitis. Patients without perioral treatment have reported a burning sensation, especially around the mouth. Perioral dermatitis is very common in adult women, but can occur in men as well as children.
