In brief: Usually not.

"dermatitis" just means "inflammation of the skin".
In other words, pretty much every rash is a "dermatitis". Even if you are using "dermatitis" as a synonym for "eczema" (as some do), the possibilities are still too broad, since there are so many different kinds of eczema. Most kinds affect men & women the same way.
