Yes: Ideally this needs to be visualised, but, yes, it is possible that you can develop contact dermatitis form any substance that may irritate your skin, and many patient s have that problem at the moment, including myself. Contact a doctor for a virtual consultation or make an appointment to see your GP for advice and treatment.

Dermatitis: Yes you could develope a sort of skin irritation by using certain substances on your skin, I have seen people develope this sort of condition but do consult your doctor to actually see the rash and advise best treatment
