Dermatitis is a general term that describes a skin irritation. Dermatitis is a common condition that has many causes and occurs in many forms. It usually involves itchy, dry skin or a rash on swollen, reddened skin. Or it may cause the skin to blister, ooze, crust or flake off. Examples of this condition are atopic dermatitis (eczema), dandruff and contact dermatitis.
Dermatitis isn’t contagious, but it can make you feel uncomfortable and self-conscious. Moisturizing regularly helps control the symptoms. Treatment may also include medicated ointments, creams and shampoos.
Reflexology can intervene in all of these cases, with great results, which are often visible from the first session. For all I have treated, which include patients with Atopic dermatitis, Contact dermatitis, Seborrheic dermatitis and Follicular eczema, they tend to get worse before it gets better, but then it rapidly disappears in the following treatments, bringing the skin back to its optimal state.
Here are some examples of cases with dermatitis, treated through Reflexology:
