A disease easily aggravated by Colorado's climate.
Dermatitis and eczema are often used interchangeably. Both represent an inflammation in the skin which can be aggravated by Colorado’s dry climate or drying and irritating topical preparations. Acute problems refer to a rapidly evolving red rash, which may be blistered and swollen. Chronic dermatitis refers to a longstanding irritable area. It is often darker than the surrounding skin, thickened and scratched. Dermatitis affects about one in every five people at some time in their lives.
Treatment usually requires a prescription topical cream or ointment to bring the problem under control. Long term preventative care involves the use of moisturizers and irritant avoidance.Book an Appointment
