Dermatitis is a general term that describes an inflammation of the skin. There are different types of dermatitis, due to both endogenous (internal) and exogenous (external) causes. This disorder usually involves swollen, reddened, flaky and itchy skin.

A combination of self-care steps and medications can help to treat dermatitis.
