What are the preventive measures for Dermatitis?
  • The first step in preventing dermatitis is raising awareness. Avoiding allergens or rash-inducing chemicals is the only approach to stop an allergic response.
  • However, avoiding flare-ups is crucial if you suffer from eczema, which is not always avoidable.
  • Scratching might cause an outbreak, so restrain yourself if you want to avoid discomfort. Scratching can cause infection by opening or reopening wounds and allowing germs to spread. 1
  • Shorter baths, gentle soaps, and warm water rather than hot water can all help avoid dry skin.
  • In addition, many people experience relief when they moisturize regularly.
