  • Contact dermatitis

    Have any of you ever dealt with contact dermatitis? I just found out some information about it doing a google search for "can seams on pants cause skin rash?".

    The article talks about how certain clothing is made with formaldehyde and that can cause skin irritation/reaction. The article says that corduroy is one of the fabrics it is used in. I have worn corduroy to work for a long time, wear it daily. I've never had a problem until now. I bought a new pair of corduroy pants last month. Noticed a week or two ago that I started forming a rash on my inner thigh. Now I noticed today that I'm forming a rash on my other inner thigh. The new pants don't seem to be tight around my thighs, but they're a different brand from what I've worn before and made in a different country than what I've had before.....I'm starting to think this new pair is the cause for the rash.....

    If you have had this, how did you treat it and make it go away?

    welcome to WH

    ideally, you would avoid things that cause your dermatitis
    however, best to visit a dermatologist and they will give you something to help

    husband sees a dermatologist once in a while as he uses chemicals/materials that will sometimes irritate his skin
    whatever they give him usually helps

    • Thanks. This is the first time this has ever happened, so I thought I would seek out proper home remedies first before paying a doctor to tell me to use Benadryl cream or something.

      • I've had this. Quite recently, too [a few months ago]. It was because I am allergic to Flash bathroom. I have had to stop using that particular cleaner and use a different bathroom spray. It was itchy and painful. I did wear rubber gloves - AND cotton gloves underneath - but this didn't stop the allergic reaction. My skin is now much better since I stopped using the Flash. I use cheap aqueous cream on my hands at night. You can buy it from any chemist.

        • I haven't heard of those products, but thank you for your response.

            I certainly do.
