Dermatitis - Definition


Definition


Dermatitis is a skin condition characterized by inflammation. One of the most common dermatitis is seborrheic dermatitis in adults which affects mainly the face, scalp, and trunk. It usually occurs between the ages of 18 and 40 and it could be a fungus (Malassezia furfur) that causes dermatitis and leads to open sores. Immunocompromising diseases, fatigue, and stress can be factors aggravating these sores. An antifungal treatment in the form of a cream, or shampoo for scalp locations, has positive effects on dermatitis. Atopic eczema, or atopic dermatitis, is an eczema of allergic origin occurring in infants.
