The most effective treatment for contact dermatitis is to avoid the substances that trigger your skin reaction. Our doctors will talk to you about the substances that irritate your skin or cause an allergic reaction, and help you determine the best steps for avoiding them. We will provide a detailed “safe list” of products you can use.
Skin irritations resulting from contact dermatitis may be treated with:
- Antihistamines, which control your body’s allergic reaction
- Anti-itch medicines and moisturizers to relieve the itching and allow your skin to heal
- Prescription cortisone creams, which alleviate difficult-to-treat rashes
- Immunosuppressants, which decrease your allergic response
