Dermatitis is a relatively common condition that can make you feel uncomfortable and self-conscious.  It is a term that describes inflammation of the skin and covers a range of conditions that have many causes and many forms.  Dermatitis typically presents as an itchy rash on red or swollen skin.


Examples of dermatitis include atopic dermatitis (eczema), dandruff and rashes caused by contact with any of a number of substances, such as chlorinated water, harsh soaps or frequent hand washing due to occupation, e.g. nurses and hairdressers who often have issues with dermatitis on their hands.  Jewelry with nickel in it can also cause irritation.  There are many possible causes and sometimes sadly it is just genetic.

Seborrheic dermatitis is a common skin condition that mainly affects the scalp.  It causes scaly patches, red skin and dandruff.  It can also affect oily areas of the body and face.  In infants this is known as cradle cap.

While it is always sensible to seek medical advice, there are also many alternative therapies, which have helped some people manage their dermatitis.

These include:

  • Dietary supplements, such as vitamin D and probiotics, for atopic dermatitis
  • Rice bran broth (applied to the skin) for atopic dermatitis
  • Tea tree oil, either alone or added to your shampoo, for seborrheic dermatitis
  • Fish oil supplements for seborrheic dermatitis
  • Aloe Vera for seborrheic dermatitis

An essential for any dermatitis sufferer is to find a very gentle soap that firstly, does not aggravate their sensitive skin condition, and secondly ideally will help bring the skin into normal balance.
