Contact dermatitis is seen as a red skin rash, with swelling and tiny itchy bubbles also. Itchy skin is a consequence of poor protection against the intrusion of viruses, bacteria and fungal infections. That's why eczema may also be extended to other areas of the skin.
WHAT IS THE CAUSE OF THE CONTACT DERMATITIS?
Contact dermatitis occurs most often in people who already have a defective skin barrier because of prior skin diseases (atopic dermatitis, ichthyosis, etc.). Allergic contact dermatitis occurs when the skin develops an allergic reaction after being exposed to a foreign substance. This causes the body to release inflammatory chemicals that can make the skin feel itchy and irritated. Substances that commonly cause contact dermatitis are: metal, jewelry, cosmetics, strong detergents and soaps, skin cleansers, perfumes, deodorants, makeup, clothes and shoes, cleaning materialist, rubber and latex, grasses,..
HOW IS CONTACT DERMATITIS TREATED?
First we have to calm down the sore and burning skin with saline or cooled boiled water. We can also make saline solution ourselves by mixing 4.5 g of salt with 500 ml of boiling water, then cool to room temperature. Then we leave the moisture patch on the inflamed area for 20-30 minutes. While the water evaporates, it cools the skin and reduces inflammation. The dressing is applied 2 to 3 times a day, but it should not be left on the irritated skin for too long, because the fabric can adhere to the skin or make it too dry.
PREVENTION AND SKIN CARE
We recommend you to take a test for allergens that might irritate your skin. The epidermis barrier should be given preventative treatment with appropriate skin moisturizing ointments. Hemptouch Hemp ointment is a very good solution for restoring sensitive skin barrier because of its gentle nature, vitamins, unsaturated hemp oil, mango and shea butter.
DID YOU KNOW... when having skin problems the use of liquid soap is not suitable, because it is hard to wash it off completely? What is recommended is a 10-20 minute bath to moisten the epidermis and the skin is then oiled at the end with natural, non-aggressive ointments for the regeneration of skin lipids.
