Skin Allergies in Palm Beach Gardens & Stuart, FL

What are Skin Allergies?

Skin allergies, also called contact dermatitis, is an irritation of the skin that occurs when it comes in contact with various allergens. Typically, skin allergies display as red, itchy or burning rashes on the skin. While many cases of skin allergies are minor and temporary, they can still cause significant discomfort, especially when they are recurring. Although there are many possible causes for skin allergies, some of the most common include:

  • Fragrance and preservatives
  • Metals, such as those in jewelry
  • Lotions and topical medications
  • Nail polish
  • Latex gloves

How are Skin Allergies Treated?

In many cases, skin allergies can be managed by avoiding the irritant that causes the allergic reaction. However, patients who are unsure of the cause of their skin allergies, or who are struggling with persistent or severe symptoms, may choose to consult a dermatologist. At Florida Dermatology Specialists, we can prescribe topical medications and offer expert advice on managing your skin allergies. During your visit, we’ll help you determine the best treatment plan for you.

How Much Does Allergy Treatment Cost?

The cost of allergy treatment at Florida Dermatology Specialists can vary depending on the strategies involved and the extent of treatment needed. In most cases, your treatment may be eligible for coverage by health insurance. During your initial consultation, we will develop a personalized treatment plan and assess your insurance coverage to determine the exact cost of treatment that you will be responsible for.

What Can I Expect from Skin Allergy Treatment?

Without skin allergy treatment, most occurrences of contact dermatitis disappear on their own within a few weeks. However, prescription topical medications can help expedite the healing process and minimize any discomfort or irritation that is present in the meantime. Our goal with skin allergy treatment is to minimize the frequency and severity of allergic reactions, through a combination of identifying the source of the allergy and providing a solution for avoiding it in the future.
