What is allergic contact dermatitis? 2018-12-05T10:12:52+00:00

Allergic contact dermatitis is a common skin disease. It is caused by contact of the skin with various agents which create local allergic inflammatory reactions.

The identification of the agent responsible for the Allergic contact dermatitis is the base of the treatment.

When does it occur ? 2018-12-05T10:11:56+00:00

Usually Allergic contact dermatitis occurs 2 to 3 days after contact with the allergen. It lasts as long contact with it continues. After removal of the allergen the skin’s allergic reaction usually continues for 1 or 2 weeks. In cases that the allergen is not removed then the lesions become chronic. This can lead to chronic eczema.
