Contact Dermatitis

Contact dermatitis is the inflammation of the skin after being in contact with allergens or irritants.

You can prevent the further spread of the rash by avoiding being in contact with the allergens or irritants that caused it. Washing your skin, wearing protective clothing or gloves, using a moisturizer or applying a barrier cream or gel, and taking care while around pets are all highly recommended.
