Here are some of the common skin conditions that Dermikelp® can help to provide symptomatic relief from by reducing inflammation and breaking the itch-scratch cycle (when itching is so severe that it is impossible to resist scratching, which then ultimately irritates the skin further and leads to even more inflammation and itching).

Contact Dermatitis

Contact dermatitis is itchy skin with redness, swelling, blistering, flaking and/or cracking caused by contact with a physical irritant (like chemicals, soaps or detergents) or by friction from tight clothing, folds of skin or jewellery.

There are three different types of contact dermatitis, irritant contact dermatitis, allergic contact dermatitis and photocontact dermatitis. Irritant contact dermatitis is the most common of these and occurs when the skin comes into contact with a toxic material such as bleach or a detergent. Allergic contact dermatitis, on the other hand, develops from an allergic reaction to a foreign substance, which can be anything from jewellery to perfumes. The third type of contact dermatitis, photocontact dermatitis, is very uncommon and is a reaction to the active ingredients in sunscreen when exposed to sunlight.

Contact dermatitis will usually go away on its own, but if your rash is close to your eyes or mouth, covers a large area of your body, or doesn? improve with at-home treatment, then you need to seek the help of a medical doctor.

Most contact dermatitis reactions aren severe but can be very uncomfortable until the itching and redness subsides. Containing a proprietary extract of kelp (CEM-K), Dermikelp® has been clinically proven to rapidly relieve itchy and irritated skin.
