Allergic Skin Reaction

Allergic Skin Reaction

Contact dermatitis looks like a rash or red spots on your skin. You get this when your skin touches something that bothers it. You may have an allergy or it may just irritate your skin. One kind of dermatitis is caused by soaps, cleaning products, or chemicals. These items often cause a burn on your skin. This is an irritant dermatitis. Other times you may be allergic to something. Plants, drugs, foods, or chemicals may cause an allergic reaction on your skin. Treatment for both kinds is to avoid the items that are causing problems.
