Find the cause. It is best to be tested. A "patch test" with multiple chemicals in cosmetics. Then avoid the ones with the one you are sensitive an allergist or a dermatologist can test you. Remove all chemicals from around eyes, hands and finger nails. Wait till the rash resolves. Use one eye shadow and then wait 3 days. If no rash develops then you know that one is safe. Remember this is a delayed reaction.
I was diagnosed with allergic contact dermatitis and prescribed Prednisone and Cordran. Can I use both on the same day or choose one or the other?
Both okay. Prednisone is an oral med. Cordran is topical. They can work together to help the rash. It's fine to use both on the same day.
Avoidance. If you are reacting to something you are putting on your face, stop. It is difficult for many females to stop using their cosmetics, completely, until the skin heals up. Otc Hydrocortisone cream is helpful in speeding up the healing process and is safe for short term use, but ultimately avoidance is the only cure.
Contact Dermatitis. Could be your makeup. The answer is to avoid the trigger as well as to use a mild topical steroid cream to calm down the inflammation.
DERMATITIS. Somebody colored his hair and he developed severe contact dermatitis to the dye. He was placed on oral steroids and cream. He never colored his hair again.
Time & less is more. Avoid all cosmetics, and know allergens. See a dermatologist to find out what you are allergic to and what to avoid in personal products that come into contact with your skin. Use products that are hypoallergenic and very mild to moisturize and sooth the skin. Dermatologist might prescribe medications to help lessen the symptoms. Time will allow the skin to heal.
DERMATITIS. Contact dermatitis on your genitals can be cured with steroid cream application 2x a day.
What is a NATURAL treatment for allergic contact dermatitis on my eyelid? It's from old eyeliner, not using anymore. I got steroids from doc
You can... You can try moisturizing cream or baby oil. Organic coconut oil which can help with inflammation as well. Make sure this is applied on the eyelid and protect your eyes from external creams.
Usually nothing. Allergic contact dermatitis is a reaction, typically to chemicals which come in contact with the skin. A classic example is poison ivy. If you don't take care of the rash, it will itch, you scratch it and run the risk of spreading the rash and causing a secondary infection. That can result in permanent scarring.
None if treated. Once the trigger for acd is identified, it is important to avoid contact with it. In cases in which the allergen is not avoided (e.g., a machinist who reacts to cutting fluid, but can't find another job), the constant inflammation in the skin leads to worsening skin breakdown, infections of the skin, permanent scarring, and side effects of the meds needed to try to control it.
Yes. Cats allergy can cause both immediate and delayed reactions. Contact dermatitis is often a delayed allergic reaction and can be treated with both antihistamines and noninflammatory creams.
