A little bit about Dermatitis

The symptoms explained by Gary’s wife and the photo that she sent (below) looked a lot like dermatitis. So you take this time to teach the student nurse who is working with you about the rash.

Types of eczema

  • Atopic dermatitis
  • Contact dermatitis
  • Dyshidrotic eczema
  • Seborrheic dermatitis
  • Neurodermatitis
  • Nummular eczema
  • Hand eczema
  • Stasis dermatitis

Direct your nurse to the link below to take them to the National Eczema Association where they can find pictures and lots of information for future use. Document your treatment options for Gary (photo above) if he had presented 1 week ago before it cleared.
