There are many different causes of dermatitis including exposure to irritating products or chemicals, such as detergents, soaps, cleaning products, waxes, and even some types of jewelry.
Seborrheic dermatitis can be caused by a combination of genes, changes in climate, stress, a patient’s overall health status, and yeast that lives on our skin.
Atopic dermatitis also has a genetic component and can be exacerbated by stress and environmental triggers. Additionally, certain foods can be associated with atopic dermatitis flare-ups, including eggs, dairy, nuts, soy products, citrus fruits, and wheat/gluten products.
Ultimately, the underlying cause of dermatitis can vary, so it’s important to consult a board-certified dermatologist to determine the root cause and find the best treatment for you.
No, dermatitis is not contagious.
This depends on the type of dermatitis. For example, atopic dermatitis (eczema) seems to appear in occasional flare-ups and is most often seasonal. Contact dermatitis, however, can last a few weeks but often resolves much quicker with steroid use when indicated.
Unfortunately, seborrheic dermatitis seems to be a lifelong issue that clears and flares up, but can be easily controlled with a good skincare routine.
