Dear lybrate-user, Please give all the details of skin allergy and other complimentary treatments that you are taking. Few of these tablets have interaction with stalopam. On the other hand, some skin problem leads to depression. Depression needs to be treated.

Types And Symptoms of Contact Dermatitis!

Types And Symptoms of Contact Dermatitis!
The condition which occurs on exposure to foreign substances and causes the skin to become red, itchy and inflamed is known as contact dermatitis. It is commonly known as a rash. Although most of the reactions to contact dermatitis are not serious, they can be very irritating till the itching subsides. The causes of contact dermatitis are usually case specific; they vary according to the different types of this disease.

The types of contact dermatitis are:

Allergic contact dermatitis: This condition occurs when an allergic reaction is developed after exposure to foreign substances. The reaction occurs with a release of inflammatory chemicals that causes the skin to become irritated and itchy. If a person has eczema, he or she can suffer from this kind of rash. Causes of allergic contact dermatitis include:
Latex gloves
Poison Oak
Jewellery (gold or nickel)
Perfumes and chemicals in skincare and cosmetic products
Irritant contact dermatitis: Contact between the skin and a toxic material causes Irritant contact dermatitis. They can be sub divided into two categories, namely chemical irritants and physical irritants. Some of the toxic substances that cause this condition include battery acid, drain cleaners, detergents, kerosene, pepper spray and bleach. The physical causes of Irritant contact dermatitis include low humidity from air conditioning, a variety of plants and so on so forth. The condition tends to become more painful, rather than itchy.
Photo-contact dermatitis: This is a very uncommon type of contact dermatitis which is caused due to the exposure of some active ingredients in sunscreen to sunlight. When sunlight is not present, the sensitive chemicals in the substances are not harmful.
Symptoms
Symptoms of contact dermatitis depend upon the causes of this condition. The symptoms of allergic contact dermatitis are:

Dry or oozing blisters
Dry, flaky and scaly skin
Redness of the skin
Extreme itching
Burning of the skin with or without sores

Dermatographism is a common, benign skin condition. People who have this condition develop welts or a localized hive-like reaction when they scratch their skin. It can also happen when the skin is exposed to pressure or rubbing. This condition is also called dermatographic urticaria. Proper Homoeopathic treatment can definitely cure this. For further treatment you can ask me through private questions.

Do this Rewarming affected skin gently, without massaging, rubbing or applying direct heat Avoiding cold exposure whenever possible Keeping your affected skin dry and warm, but away from sources of heat Applying lotion to alleviate itching Making sure the affected skin is cleaned with an antiseptic and gently bandaged to prevent infection Avoiding scratching Quitting smoking, as smoking can constrict your blood vessels and slow wound healing To prevent chilblains: Avoid or limit your exposure to cold. Dress in layers of loose clothing and wear mittens and warm, water-resistant footwear. Cover all exposed skin as completely as possible when going outside in cold weather. Keep your hands, feet and face dry and warm. Keep your home and workplace comfortably warm. Don't smoke. If your skin is exposed to cold, it's helpful to rewarm it gradually because sudden rewarming of cold skin may worsen chilblains.
