This site describes a number of varieties of dermatitis, including:
Dermatitis herpetiformis - sometimes also referred to as Duhring’s Disease and it is a form of skin disorder that is considered quite akin to celiac disease in which a person may notice rashes that itch almost chronically and such rashes have papules and also vesicles. In fact, this condition is also considered to have a major bearing with a person’s own sensitivity to gluten and you can expect dermatitis herpetiformis to affect people in their twenties while sometimes even children can contract this disease.
Dyshidrotic Dermatitis - comes in names like hand eczema, Pompholyx, vesicular eczema, and vesicular palmoplantar eczema. It is characterized by having scaly, dry, and itchy skin on your hands which may result to cracking, redness, and sometimes, boils, depending on the severity of the skin condition that you have.
Lichenoid Dermatitis - a skin condition in which there is a histological damage to the lower epidermis along with a grouped chronic inflammatory infiltrate in the papillary dermis disturbing the interface between the epidermis and dermis which as we all know, are the top layer of our skin.
Perivascular Dermatitis - has the same triggers as any other common dermatitis condition. The factors that can magnify perivascular dermatitis are allergens, irritants and other environmental factors that cause our skin to react to them.
Photoallergic Dermatitis - sun rash. This allergic reaction manifests itself as small blisters which look red and may be small or large spots all over the skin that is exposed to the sun. Not all skin areas may have the rash; it usually depends on the individual. Photoallergic dermatitis appears after just a few minutes exposure to the sun while in other people it can be a few hours exposure.
Pyotraumatic Dermatitis - only happens with animals like dogs and cats which are all a very popular home pets. And if we are not vigilant and careful about treating it right away, our pets may suffer a severe case of it that would not only make them look unhealthy, but also could trigger great amounts of hair loss and other skin conditions that are disturbing not only for our pets, but also for us to see.
Radiation Dermatitis - if you have suffered from cancer and have taken radiation therapy, then there is a great likelihood of your being at risk of having your skin damaged, and you could also be unfortunate enough to suffer from radiation dermatitis, though such instances vary for the type of cancer you have, and also the radiation therapy program used.
