Contact dermatitis nyc new york ny

Contact dermatitis: allergic (resulting from a delayed reaction to some allergen, such as poison ivy or nickel), and irritant (resulting from direct reaction to a substance, often something you have frequent contact with such as detergents). About 3/4 of cases of contact eczema are of the irritant type, which is the most common occupational skin condition. Contact eczema can be avoided by removing the offending substance from your environment and refraining from use.
