Ochre dermatitis - Definition



Definition


Ochre dermatitis is a skin disease localized in the lower limbs, often on the inner part of the ankles or the front part of the shins. This is a condition that appears initially as reddish purple patches, which turn brown. The rupture of small superficial blood vessels, the capillaries, is often due to excessive venous pressure as in varicose veins or phlebitis, and causes iron to be released and deposited in the skin tissue and gives it that color. It is a sign of venous insufficiency and may progress to ulceration of the skin in the absence of care.
