  2. 2. Understanding Dermatitis And Its Symptoms With so many things that could go wrong with the human body at any moment, it can sometimes be hard to know exactly what is happening when there is a problem starting to develop. Not a lot of people understand what exactly dermatitis is, even though they may have heard of the term in the past. To make it simple, dermatitis is just a term that is used to describe a general inflammation of the skin. So, what this means is that there are actually several types of inflammations of the skin that a person could be suffering from.
  3. 3. Different Types Of Dermatitis, But even though there are a few different types of dermatitis, most of these will have signs that are the same such as swollen skin that is itchy and can become very red in color. Although it can look pretty bad, it is important to understand that dermatitis is not contagious so if you have it, you cannot spread it to your friends and family, and you cannot in turn catch it from them. It is not life threatening but it can be a pain to deal with but with the proper steps taken and medications used, it can be treated fairly easily.
  4. 4. Different Kinds As mentioned, there are several types of dermatitis that a person can get depending on their body and system. There is contact dermatitis, which simply means that the rash will come about because of contact of allergy-producing irritants. There is also what is known as neurodermatitis , which is itchy skin that usually stays in one particular area. When someone is facing a scalp condition, which is the cause of their dandruff, they may be suffering from seborrheic dermatitis.
  5. 5. Known As Stasis Dermatitis Also, there is what is known as stasis dermatitis. This is a collection of fluid under the skin that is on the legs. A rash that feels and may appear as bumpy around the mouth area is known as perioral dermatitis. And let us not forget the most common out of the different types of dermatitis and that is atopic dermatitis, otherwise known as eczema.
  6. 6. Irritating Rash This chronic, itchy, and irritating rash can seem to come and go at a moments notice. As you can see, while these are not skin problems that will greatly interfere with a person's day to day life, they can be somewhat of a nuisance but they can be treated. With proper treatment, every type of rash can be handled with ease.
