- Neurodermatitis – An itchy sensation arises in a specific region – usually associated with dry skin, chronic irritation, eczema, and psoriasis. People often repeatedly rub or scratch affected skin. This type of dermatitis often affects the ankles, wrist, outer forearm or arm, and back of the neck.
- Seborrheic Dermatitis – A red rash accompanied by yellowish and somewhat “oily” scales develops on the scalp, which typically affects people with oily skin or hair. This kind of dermatitis is sometimes considered a seasonal condition. It is also a condition that runs in the family. Physical stress, travel and neurological issues, such as Parkinson’s disease, also contribute to this scalp dermatitis. When infants suffer the condition, it is called cradle cap.
- Statis Dermatitis – When fluid accumulates in the tissues (just beneath the skin), this form of dermatitis usually appears on the lower legs when blood circulation in the legs is poor. Varicose veins, recurrent infections, and chronic conditions in the legs are possible causes.
- Atopic Dermatitis – Often seen in people with allergies or who have hereditary conditions, such as asthma or hay fever, this condition is also associated with dry skin and a poor immune system. Stress is not a cause of atopic dermatitis, but can make symptoms worse.
- Perioral Dermatitis – Affecting the skin around the mouth or nose, perioral dermatitis can be a form of rosacea, adult acne or seborrheic dermatitis. Makeup, moisturizers, topical corticosteroids, and fluoride dental products can cause this type of condition.
