Skin allergy (or contact dermatitis as your doctor would call it) is one of the most common chronic diseases and whether you live in Denmark, Belgium, England, Singapore or New York, there will be ingredients in your cosmetic products, skincare products, shampoos and detergents that you can have an allergic reaction to.
Here are just a few of the typical Q&A
What is skin allergy?
Skin allergy also called contact dermatitis is an allergy that you can get when you are in direct skin contact with allergens. The allergens can be chemical ingredients such as perfume, formaldehyde and methylisothiazolinone (preservatives) and ppd (hair colour and black henna tattoos).
Are allergies hereditary?
Everyone can get skin allergy, this kind of allergy mainly depends on what you get exposed to rather that what you inherit. The more you or your children are exposed to the allergens the bigger a risk. Some years ago skin allergy was only observed in adults, but new studies show that children are starting to get this allergy and the age is getting lower and lower.
Why do I get skin allergy?
There are two kinds of skin allergy. One is an irritative response. This is often seen on hands and comes after to much exposure to water, soap and oil where the skin barrier is broken and the skin reacts with eczema. This can be helped by preventing skin contact by using gloves.
The other reaction is called allergic contact dermatitis and comes after exposure to allergens. The bigger exposure the bigger a risk. Unfortunately we can not predict who get skin allergy, but the most common pattern is that people react after they have been exposed to the same chemical for several years. Some products such as deodorants and leave on products give a bigger exposure than rinse off products such as shampoo, soap ect.
Can I prevent getting skin allergy?
Yes, you can prevent getting skin allergy by avoiding products that contain allergens. If you want to use perfume you can avoid getting the perfume on your skin and instead spinkle it on your shirt were there is no skin contact.
