I also have contact dermatitis from a graftjacket that was inserted in my foot to fix a tore tendon after surgery. I have been on steroids, steroid shots and both have ruined my body. I contacted a natural doctor and he told me to get a bottle of head and shoulders and put about 30 drops of tea tree oil and use that as a body wash for a month and it will go away. And it did!! I have been suffering a year and it was as easy as head and shoulders and tea tree oil.

Try it!

unfortunately it can be anything, with my son it was the snaps on his favorite shirt. It might be something unusual like that, try to think of any common factors for when it pops up

change your landry, spray cleaner dishwashing and hand soap to a fragrence and dye free type,and re-wash all your clothes.It could also be that you have poisen ivy poisin oak or sumack in your yard,or some idiot has burned some in their yard.Find someone who can ID those and ask them to look in your yard (know any boy or girl scouts??)And ask your dr. to look at is because it might be an infection that needs anti-biotics.

Also, if it continues, get checked for food allergies. My family has tons of them, and sometimes dermatitis results.

Contact dermatits is caused by an allergen. So, there has to be a trigger somewhere thats new. Are you using any new soaps or creams?

I had dermatits on my hands when i was pregnant , it was actually how we found out I was pregnant with my son , my doctor said its a sign of pregnancy...... Anyways the only thing that helped me was cortisone cream which I would constantly rub on my fingers and I had to take off all my rings. I just started getting again around my ring finger, I believe it keeps coming back because when I wash my hands I dont always take off my rings and germs collect and cause the area to get infected.
