Know about contact dermatitis

Both the terms ‘eczema’ and ‘dermatitis’ are the same in their characteristics, hence either of the terms can be used in this article, but the term ‘dermatitis’ is being used here.

In simple meaning dermatitis is a skin inflammation and as the disease is easily transmittable by contacts, it is known as ‘contact dermatitis’ or ‘contact eczema’. The problem is caused by the environmental issues (not people to people).

Causes of contact dermatitis

Two main groups i.e. allergens and irritants are the two environmental things to cause dermatitis. Irritants include solvents and detergents having the capacity of stripping the skin of natural oil and so causing dermatitis to flare up because of frequent protection less contacts. This skin condition of ‘skin change’ is known as irritating contact dermatitis. The amounts of a person’s exposure to irritants determine the type & severity of contact dermatitis. The persons who are constantly exposed to wet work are the common victims of this dermatitis disease. The persons engaged in catering trades, bars, hairdressing, clothe washing and nursing are the prominent ones to encounter the problem.

Allergens are proactively dominant for developing specific reactions, when a person has to often contact them. Materials like perfumes or preservatives, nickel, rubber etc.

How does the Darier’s disease look?

Children and Young people between the ages 6 and 20 are mostly the victims of the Darier’s disease. Severity of the problem is varying. The problem is completely unpredictable. Rashes, at the initial stage, often develop on upper back, neck and chest. Watery bumps may surface at any part of the body, especially under the skin of the breasts. People do not experience much trouble in their face because skin near the hairline and the forehead become the main affected areas.

The blisters split easily and are rather fragile. They appear to be dirty as if the part is bitten. Long red and white lines are obviously visible, running across the length of the nails. Flat warts on the hands’ backside and/or nail changing are often seen in the childhood. These symptoms are well before any other appearances of symptoms of skin changes. Palms of the hands are found with pits and hard skin, while sometimes the same problems are visible on the feet-soles. In some cases, some small spots are found in the mouth, which may cause rough feeling around the roof of the mouth.

Diagnosis of the problem

Once the rash surfaces, diagnosing the Darier’s disease becomes easier. The other indicator is it is hereditary; people become victims of their parent’s disease. For the confirmation, a biopsy is done by taking a small piece of skin (through local anaesthesia) and microscopically examining it.

Is Darier’s disease curable?

No, till date no cure has been identified. However, there are different ways of controlling it.
