Allergic Contact Dermatitis Itch

An allergy is a term that represents a reaction to a irritating substance (allergen) by a select group of people and does not effect others who are not allergic to it. Small quantities of an allergen are necessary to create a allergic reaction. Contact allergic dermatitis usually occurs from a allergen in contact with the skin rather than internally produced. The first contact does not result in allergy; often the person has been able to touch the material for many years without adverse reaction.

Allergic contact dermatitis is an itchy skin condition caused by an allergic reaction to a substance or material in contact with the skin. It typically reacts several hours after contact with irritant and calms down over some days assuming the skin is no longer in contact with it.

Allergic contact dermatitis is different from irritant contact dermatitis caused by skin contact with irritating substances. Common irritants include soaps, detergents, solvents, acids, alkalies, and other chemicals. Irritant contact dermatitis can affect anyone, assuming they have had enough exposure to the irritant.

Features of Dermatitis Itch

Dermatitis is generally restricted to the area of contact with the allergic substance, however severe cases may become generalized beyond the original contact area. Allergic irritants, like poison ivy or oak can be spread to other areas of the body by touch. It is unlikely that dermatitis exists if the affected skin area is not reactive to an known irritant. Affected areas will be red, swollen, blistered, dry, bumpy, or itchy.

Examples of Dermatitis Itch

  • Reaction to the wrist strap of a watch due to contact with a allergic substance nickel.
  • Reaction to rosin in an adhesive plaster or wrap from a leg injury.
  • Reaction to rubber or latex gloves.
  • Reaction to hand moisturizer or makeup.
  • Reaction to soap, shampoo, laundry detergent.
Step 3. Skin Itch Treatment
What can I do?
Skin Allergy Itch
1. Test for contact allergies or rule out known allergies.
2. Review changes to your life-style (hiking, outdoor sports, new clothing, change in soaps or detergents, etc.).
3. Test known suspect materials like cosmetics, moisturizers, household plants, shampoos, soaps, etc. on a small
inner arm area for allergic reactions. Keep track of the test substance and inner arm area it was applied.
4. If you have an allergic skin reaction to a known substance remove and avoid it.
5. If soaps, shampoos or other products with multiple chemicals exist within the ingredients, and you have an allergic reaction, learn to read all product ingredients and avoid products with similar chemical ingredients.
6. Treat irritated skin with Itch Rx (see below). It will help control itch symptoms.
7. Re-apply Itch Rx to affected areas as necessary to help control itch symptoms. Avoid mucus membranes.
