Dermatitis is a common skin condition, especially in children, and can be alarming when it first flares up due to its rather unpleasant symptoms. Otherwise known as Eczema, Dermatitis can be a debilitating condition that not only causes skin irritation, but can be extremely bothersome for younger children. Or adults, it can be a source of embarrassment and can damage their self-confidence.

Children regularly experience dermatitis within the first year of life, and it can be extremely itchy for the child which will cause incredible discomfort. Constant scratching of any dermatitis infection can cause it to become worse and require hasty treatment to avoid a more significant flare-up and potential spreading.

What causes Dermatitis?

The amount of people who suffer from Dermatitis had steadily increased for the last thirty years, and this can be attributed to a variety of reasons.

From the environment that you live in to genetics (family member who suffered from dermatitis or asthma can increase your chances) can be the main cause for it. Although it’s not contagious, it does run in the family and can be greatly exasperated simply due to this fact.

It’s a condition that roughly 20% of children around the globe suffer from, and whilst it’s not serious or life-threating in any fashion it can be uncomfortable to live with. Another root cause for many people in their eczema is allergies to certain foods. If this is the case, you should pay close attention to what they eat as it could be the root cause of it in the first place.
