All about Irritated Skin

Irritated skin is an extremely common skin care concern that typically affects all people at some point in their lives. Sometimes called dermatitis, irritation is a blanket term used to describe skin that is red, puffy and inflamed. Irritated skin may be painful or itchy, and in severe cases, may include lesions. Skin irritation can be acute, meaning that it comes on suddenly, or chronic, meaning that it persists for long periods of time and may develop slowly.

Underlying Cause

Some type of trigger sets off all types of irritated skin. This trigger may be something external to your body that you come in contact with. In some cases, the irritant or trigger is an actual threat, but in other cases, the substance is harmless to most people, but your body perceives it incorrectly. This is known as an allergic response. Triggers can also occur due to a dysfunction in your immune system that makes your body perceive a threat that is not actually there. This type is considered "auto-immune" irritation.
