Irritant Contact Dermatitis: Common Irritants

Common Irritants

Common irritants may include even water. Some people get dermatitis if they are in contact with water for a long time. Other common irritants are solvents, salts, alkalis, acids, detergents, etc. These irritants react with the skin cells and destroy them. They dissolve the skin oil, penetrate the skin and damage it. In extreme cases, the wound may be a big one. Most of the acids and alkalis cause burns, so be careful when you use them.
