Prevention of environmental dermatitis.
Postgrad Med 1972 Jan; 51(1):135-137
Environmental dermatitis usually is the result of a contact allergen, photo-sensitization or atopy. Recognition that dermatitis is due to either of the first two causes with subsequent specific therapy, often results in rapid relief of long-standing disease. Atopic dermatitis, although not environmental in origin, is often exacerbated by environmental factors and therefore can be alleviated by environmental manipulation.
