Contact Dermatitis On Lips
A dermatologist yesterday diagnosed me with severe contact dermatitis on my lips. I got a low dose steroid shot. How long til I see peak effect?
What are some common allergens that trigger contact dermatitis around the mouth and lips? Goes away with baking soda. It appears like flaky skin.
Can allergic contact dermatitis cause you to form tiny blisters on your lips and cause your skin to be itchy?
Yes: Contact dermatitis is a very common medical issue. Normally there is some sort of trigger that causes your body's immune system to over react. Depending on which part of the body received the trigger is where the manifestation of the skin inflammation normally occurs. In fact, sometimes there are things that do not trigger a reaction the first time but after several exposures it can intensify.
I've had pin head like rash on my ankles for about 1 wk. Dr. Said contact dermatitis, I think petechae. No other symptoms. When should I worry?
Rash: If it is petechiae your doctor would have told you it petechiae. If it spreads then it is a concern and needs to be worked out
Should check it out: You may have thrush--a fungal infection and can happen at any age. In infancy, it is common and often of no consequences. In adult, usually there is a cause: med use such as steroid, asthma/copd inhalers, antibiotic use, immunocompromised states such as hiv/aids, cancer/chemotherapy etc...Thrush is not associated with contact dermatitis. It is easily treatable. Consult doc. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
Probably not: Related. White spots inside the mouth could mean a condition called leukoplakia, a precancerous condition. So have an oral surgeon or head & neck surgeon look at it.
Perioral dermatitis: Is relatively common. It has unknown etiology. If persists, please, see a physician. Can be treated with antibiotics or antifungals if deemed appropriate by a physician.See 1 more doctor answer

My 6 month old developed contact dermatitis on her chin & mouth from oatmeal cereal and bananas. Could this be from the food touching her skin?
Pattern, history: Contact dermatitis presents with a distinctive pattern that any experienced dermatologist will recognize. That clinical presentation, coupled with a careful history of allergenic substances that you have been in contact with recently, will usually confirm the diagnosis.
Poison ivy: The most commonly known contact dermatitis is the reaction some people develop to poison ivy/ poison oak. Many times you may contact the oils from these plants and even though it didn't cause problems before, you start itching 12-24 hours after touching the plant the blisters develop usually 2 days later. Your immune system is trying to kill any part of your skin that has plant oils on it.See 1 more doctor answer
Allergy: When you are allergic to one of the ingredients of the cosmetic in question, you will develop contact dermatitis. Unfortunately it is frequently difficult to identify the specific ingredient that is causing the problem, since cosmetic companies often keep their formulas secret. A dermatologist can help you do it, though, with patch testing.
