Allergic Contact Dermatitis


What causes Allergic Contact Dermatitis?

Allergic Contact Dermatitis is eczema caused by an allergy to a chemical that is coming in contact with the skin. An allergy can develop after only a few days of use/contact, or it can be caused by something you have been using for years. If you suspect that you have an allergy to a chemical, consider visiting a dermatologist who specializes in chemical allergy testing called patch testing.
