What is… Dermatitis?

Dermatitis is a blanket term that is used to describe any inflammation or irritation of the skin. There are numerous causes of dermatitis, ranging from internal causes to external exposure or irritants.

The most common form of dermatitis is contact dermatitis, which is caused when the skin comes in contact with an environmental irritant. Other types of dermatitis include seborrheic dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, and nummular dermatitis.

  1. A lot of times after being outside for several hours in the hottest months I will get a rash on my chest, back, and upper arms. It only happens in the areas that are covered by my shirt. I play a lot of golf and and that seems to be when it happens the most. Area that are not covered by my shirt do not get a rash at all. My back seems to get the worst of it and typically the night after being outside my back will be covered in red spots and then overnight they will turn in to what looks like tons of pimples. I of course try to pop as many as I can because its easy to do it but I cant reach most of them and there are too many to get. The rash usually lasts about 2/3 days before its completely gone. I have found that keeping my shirt untucked helps and I also take an allergy pill and that seems to help a little bit but will not prevent the rash. Is this dermatitis or a heat rash or something completely different? Can I take something to help or prevent this problem? I know that staying out of the heat might be the best solution but when you live in the south that’s not really an option. It’s a wet heat that produces the biggest rash. I have played golf in Las Vegas during the summer where its 105 degrees but its a dry heat and does not seem to bother me. Thanks Dr PP!
