Dermatitis is a group of inflammatory disorders that affect the skin. It can result from allergy, infection, autoimmune or other causes that lead to skin redness and itching. Atopic dermatitis is an example of allergic dermatitis while seborrheic dermatitis can be caused by fungal infection.
An overview of the most common types of dermatitis and their clinical presentation is in this course, join now!
Good lecture. The talking is very smooth and continuous not robotic like it sometimes tends to be the case with Dr.Raj. Excellent! Good explanation of the terms and the difference between atopic and contact dermatitis! Some more elaboration on treatment options, including non-pharmacologic and the role of allergen testing (should you do it or not?) would be a good addition.
Easy to understand. I recommend adding more information regarding medication such as what kind of systemic seroid we are using.
Fantastic talk but would have liked further information on non-pharmacological treatment and also the role of allergen testing
I find one of the challenging aspects of dermatology is to keep in the various ddx for "similar" looking presentation. The way these lectures are set out has been very useful to have a few ddx to think about when facing a pt with a rash!
