Treatments

  • Steroid cream or ointment

    Your dermatologist may prescribe a steroid cream or ointment that you apply directly to the skin affected by the contact dermatitis to help soothe the irritation and calm itching. You will likely apply the steroid one or two times each day for two to four weeks.

  • Oral medications

    In severe cases, your dermatologist may prescribe oral (taken by mouth) medication — such as corticosteroids, antihistamines, or antibiotics — to relieve bothersome symptoms or fight a bacterial infection.
