What is dermatitis & how is it treated?

Dermatitis, also known as eczema, is a condition that causes dry, inflamed and itchy skin.

Typically, there are two common methods of treating dermatitis:

  1. Emollients – designed for very dry and sensitive skin. They come as cleansers and moisturisers
  2. Topical corticosteroids – applied directly to affected areas, these come in the form of creams and ointments

Different atopic dermatitis (eczema) treatments are applied differently. If you suffer from atopic dermatitis you should apply emollients to your skin every day, and only apply topical corticosteroids when you are experiencing a flare up.
