Therefore, allergic dermatitis primarily localised in the skin of the hands. It becomes thin, irritated, crazing, peeling, all these symptoms are accompanied by itching.
Why is there disease?
Reasons for our body often become a chemical:
After contact with the allergen symptoms do not appear immediately, it may take a lot of time, it is often 14 days (in this case, it is diagnosed as «allergic contact dermatitis»).
Sometimes it requires lengthy and frequent contact with the irritants. The response of the body is carried out by lymphocytes that leave the blood stream and accumulate in the inflammation.
Directly in the skin are cells, phagocytes, they engulf and digest the allergens, bind them to its surface.
The body is deployed by the immune response, so the repeated contact is in our blood already have immune cells that «familiar» with a foreign substance.
Because of this, each subsequent contact is more pronounced symptoms.
More information on clinical picture
How does the inflammation on the skin, than different from other diseases? Many of the symptoms are very similar to eczema.
The initial stage is characterized by the appearance of large red spots on their background gradually form bubbles of small size (shown in photo).
The bubbles are formed on the back surface of hands, between fingers, sometimes reaching up to the skin of the forearm.
Elements burst content will expire and in their place are formed crust, oozing. In a large number on the background of dry skin can form crusts and scales.
Any allergic reaction may occur on any area of the body, especially of secondary lesions.
So , for example, cold dermatitis, manifests itself on different parts of the body, but mostly hands and face (on the folds of the elbows, phalanges), which during walking are not covered by clothing.
Not to be confused with allergic dermatitis with other types, for example, seborrheic, when the skin is also formed scales.
