Through a skin check, analysis of your medical history and your symptoms, your doctor can diagnose contact dermatitis without the need for laboratory tests but may require patch tests to identify allergens causing the irritation or some additional test to make sure that there are no other skin conditions that can worsen the case.
Once the allergen has been identified, you must avoid future contact with the substance that caused dermatitis.
In addition to the personal care and hygiene habits that you should adopt, treatment may include:
- Application of wet and cold compresses.
- Steroid ointments and lotions.
