What’s the best treatment for Dermatitis?
When considering treatment for dermatitis, we need to look more generally at skin and skin disease. While skin is the largest organ, it is also a screen that can be monitored about the state of your mind-body. Skin is affected by primary and secondary diseases. Primary is the diseases of the skin. Secondaries are toxicity from other organs affecting the skin. As the roof cracks and ceiling leaks, a carpet can get wet and ruined.

When the gut cracks, the body’s fluid get contaminated and skin expresses the toxicity. Any tissue malfunctioning may dump metabolic toxins into the skin if it is weak and susceptible. Most cleanses move toxins from the skin to fluids. A holistic approach is to move it further into the gut and then out of the body, as well as repair the damage and re-empower the skin appropriately.

What is Seborrheic dermatitis?
Seborrheic (seb-o-REE-ik) dermatitis is a common skin condition that mainly affects your scalp. It causes scaly patches, red skin and stubborn dandruff. Seborrheic dermatitis can also affect oily areas of the body, such as the face, sides of the nose, eyebrows, ears, eyelids and chest.
What is contact dermatitis?
This falls under the twag-roga category of Ayurveda. Two main groups of things in the environment cause contact dermatitis: irritants and allergens. Irritants are substances like detergents and solvents that strip the skin of its natural oils, and cause dermatitis to develop if contacted frequently and without skin protection. When this happens, the skin changes are known as an irritant contact dermatitis.
The most important factor in causing this type of contact dermatitis is the number of irritants to which you are exposed. It is particularly common in people who do a lot of wet work, for example, nurses, hairdressers, those who work in bars, and those in the catering trade. Allergens are things to which your immune system can develop a specific reaction after you have come into contact with them.
Examples include substances such as nickel, rubber, and perfumes or preservatives used in some creams and cosmetics. This type of dermatitis is called allergic contact dermatitis. It is not known why some people who are exposed to these allergens develop it while others do not. Sometimes substances such as proteins in fruit and vegetables can cause an immediate allergic reaction leading to itchy skin swellings known as contact urticaria (hives), which in turn can aggravate your dermatitis. Contact dermatitis cannot be caught from nor spread to other people.
What’s the best treatment for Dermatitis?
All health systems have treatments for dermatitis. There are dozens of disease groups under the title dermatitis. Ayurveda sees this as a gut dysfunction that leaks toxins into the body’s water and then into the skin where they trigger an inflammatory response, to be named dermatitis.
Ayurveda looks at the whole body and life in every health condition. Ayurveda has established the gut-skin connection thousands of years back. If we treat eczema just as a skin disease, there is no long term relief. But, as in Ayurveda, if you treat it as a lifestyle-related gut and tissue problem, there is.
Is contact dermatitis hereditary?
People with a tendency to asthma, eczema and hay fever develop irritant contact dermatitis more easily than others, and this tendency does run in families. While this is a general thought, half of my clients have no genetic history.
What are the symptoms of contact dermatitis?
Itching of the skin is the most common symptom. Itching can be intense. Triggers include temperature change, contact, time of the day, season, etc.
Skin can get sore, and painful cracks can develop over the backs of the fingers when dermatitis affects the hands.
What does contact dermatitis look like?
The most common areas for dermatitis are the hands, arms, face, and legs. During a flare, the skin gets inflamed and the surface looks red and scaly. Sometimes, tiny water blisters develop and these leak fluid when scratched. When the contact dermatitis is less active, the skin looks thick and dry, and painful little cracks can form over joints.
Can contact dermatitis be cured?
Yes – if you can greatly reduce your contact with irritants, then your irritant contact dermatitis will improve or clear. If patch testing shows that you are allergic to a specific allergen, then avoiding that allergen will usually lead to a big improvement or even complete clearance of your allergic contact dermatitis.

What is the dermatitis treatment?
Anti-inflammatory skin herbs are used for effective results as a dermatitis treatment. Along with this, a personalised gut repair is also advocated. Skin is well managed with natural moisturisers, antiseptic, anti-inflammatories and skin soothers like Sorion Cream.
Atopic dermatitis is a condition that often begins in infancy or early childhood but can also begin in young adults or even later in life. The skin becomes red, swollen and very itchy. The itchiness may interfere with sleep and may get aggravated in winter. The inflammation and itchiness wax and wane in severity.
Hand dermatitis is a common condition seen in the primary care setting. Occupational exposures and frequent hand washing often lead to symptoms that are irritating and may cause discomfort. Irritant dermatitis, atopic hand dermatitis, and contact hand dermatitis account for at least 70% of all diagnoses.
