Contact dermatitis is a term that refers to skin reaction (dermatitis) that is a consequence of exposure to allergens or irritants. Conventional medicine offers treatments that often consist of lotions, creams, or oral medications. Corticosteroids and antihistamines are most commonly used types of medications.
Homeopathic remedies are natural cures based on treating the individual patient with highly diluted substances that trigger the body’s natural healing system. Symptoms of the conditions are being seen as a part of a wider scale, involving the whole person. That is why, remedy that helps one person may not be suitable for the other. Homeopathic cures for contact dermatitis may also be applied in the treatment of allergic contact dermatitis, systemic contact dermatitis and chronic dermatitis.
