Allergic Contact Dermatitis Information and Treatment

Allergic contact dermatitis is a condition that occurs when the skin comes into contact with a substance that produces an allergic reaction (e.g., rash). These substance generally called as allergens and some of these are harmless to most people and some people born or develop a hypersensitivity to these substances. When exposed to allergens (usually organic substances or chemicals), these people experience an allergic reaction. Allergic contact dermatitis is the second most common type of contact dermatitis, and occurs more often in patients who have other allergies.

The reaction usually appears within 48 hours after the initial exposure to the allergen. Symptoms that are commonly seen include the following: redness, swelling, blistering, itching, and weeping. This disease is not caused by "irritants" like acid, alkali, solvent, strong soap or detergent. About 50% to 70% of people are sensitized to this chemical and are, therefore, allergic. The allergen can be a substance in a product that you have used for many years it does not have to be a new product. Allergic contact dermatitis occurs more commonly in adults.
