Dermatitis is essentially referring to different forms of skin inflammations. These inflammations can come in the form of dry skin, itchiness, bumps, swelling, discoloration of skin, and typically followed by infections.
P.S – While dermatitis refers to skin inflammations, eczema was derived from the Greek word for “boil or bubble over” typically referring to swelling within tissue.
Almost everyone in their lifetime may develop dermatitis in some shape or form. As we get older, our body undergoes biological changes, partly in relation with our lifestyle so this can be expected. Ultimately, they are two types of dermatitis: Exogenous and Endogenous.
