Q:
What is allergic dermatitis?

A:
If you have allergy, after touching something, your immune system may think your body is under attack. It will make antibodies to fight invaders. Then, a series of events cause a release of chemicals, including histamine. Histamine causes allergic reaction, and the reaction here is an itchy rash.

  • Rash.

  • Inflammation.
  • Localized swelling.
  • Tender and warmer skin.
  • Pain.

If you find that you have dermatitis, you had better visit your doctor and receive the check to see whether your dermatitis is allergic dermatitis. To mitigate the itching feeling, you need to figure out the allergen and avoid contact with allergen in your daily life.
