What is dermatitis?


Many will describe dermatitis as simply inflammation of the skin. For those of us who suffer from dermatitis, we know that it is much more! Not only is the skin inflamed but, it can become dry, cracked, sore and bleeding. In some cases so severe that the sufferer is unable to carry out even normal day to day activities without experiencing excruciating pain and discomfort. It is a constant drain both emotionally and physically, and not just for the sufferer but also family members as well.

Doctors classify dermatitis into three types, depending on the cause of the inflammation
Irritant contact dermatitis is triggered by exposure to a chemical that is poisonous (toxic) or irritating to human skin. It is not an allergic reaction.

Allergic contact dermatitis is an immune reaction that occurs only in people who are naturally oversensitive to certain chemicals. With allergic contact dermatitis, the inflammation may not develop until 24 to 36 hours after contact with the substance (allergen). This is because allergic contact dermatitis involves the body's immune defences, a process that takes some time. Skin allergies vary from person to person.

Atopic dermatitis, or eczema as it is commonly known, is a chronic, recurring inflammatory skin disease that is most common in people with a family history of an atopic disorder: asthma, hay fever etc. Eczema is characterized by patchy, dry, itchy and scaly areas of skin. In severe cases of eczema, the skin can weep, bleed, and crust over

Depending on the cause symptoms of contact dermatitis may vary slightly, :

Irritant contact dermatitis — In mild cases, there may be only mild redness of the skin. More severe cases may cause skin swelling, blistering or even ulceration. Symptoms usually begin immediately after exposure to the harmful substance, and they are limited to areas of the skin that have been touched, splashed, covered by or immersed in the irritant.

Allergic contact dermatitis — When contact dermatitis is caused by an allergic reaction, it usually causes skin redness, blistering and severe itching. Because allergic contact dermatitis is a form of delayed hypersensitivity, symptoms may not appear for several hours after exposure to the allergen. The location and pattern of the skin reaction may provide clues to the cause of the problem.

If symptoms of either type of dermatitis are not treated, and the skin continues to be exposed to the substance that is triggering the skin reaction, contact dermatitis may become a long-lasting (chronic) condition. In chronic contact dermatitis, the skin eventually becomes thick, scaly and dry, with colour changes and areas of hair loss.

I fully appreciate, not only the physical aspects of having a condition such as dermatitis, but also the emotional impact the condition has on you and your family. That is why I manufacture Derma Shield. I believe that dermatitis sufferers deserve the best treatment and care possible at affordable prices.

As one of our customers said:

Thank you for my first order of Derma Shield.

I have had dermatitis on my fingers now for a couple of weeks due to contact with DIY materials and do not like to use hydro-cortisone cream for long periods. Your product has stopped the itching and my fingers are healing up nicely after 5 days of use and it is very pleasant to use and the 50ml size fits nicely in my handbag.

I will definitely be using Derma Shield from now on as a preventative measure and skin barrier cream when painting, cleaning etc. and I will definitely be recommending your product to my friends.

Thanking you once again.

B.G. of Gloucestershire, 24th March 2011

Users constantly tell me that their quality of life has greatly improved since using Derma Shield. It has relieved the pain and constant suffering that they endure, and they are no longer embarrassed and self conscious about their dermatitis damaged skin.

Best wishes
