Causes Of Irritant Contact Dermatitis

Irritant contact dermatitis is normally confined to the site of contact. It is unlike allergic contact dermatitis, which may spread to a wider area. But many times, it becomes difficult to differentiate between the two types of dermatitis. Examples of common irritant contact dermatitis may include:

  • Housewives eczema, which is caused by daily contact with water, detergents and other household cleaning materials.
  • Dermatitis forming under rings wore on fingers, because of accumulation of the irritant such as soap below the rings.
  • Cosmetics that may cause irritation, etc.
