dermatitis lotion

Contact Dermatitis is a type of skin inflammation that is frequently characterized by a red, itchy rash. It occurs when the skin comes in contact with irritants (Irritant Dermatitis) or allergens (Allergic Contact Dermatitis). Phototoxic Dermatitis occurs when the allergen or irritant is activated by sunlight.

Allergic Contact Dermatitis

Allergic contact dermatitis occurs when the skin develops an allergic reaction after being exposed to a foreign substance. This causes the body to release inflammatory chemicals that can make the skin feel itchy and irritated.

Common causes of allergic contact dermatitis includes jewelry (which contains base metals such as nickel), gold, latex gloves, perfumes, chemicals in cosmetics and skincare products, poison oak and poison ivy.

Irritant Contact Dermatitis

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, irritant contact dermatitis is the most common type of contact dermatitis. This happens when the skin comes in contact with a toxic material.

Also known as “hand eczema”, irritant contact dermatitis can occur when the skin comes in contact with less irritating materials like soap, or even water. People whose hands are frequently exposed to water, such as hairdressers, bartenders, and healthcare workers, often experience irritant contact dermatitis.

symptoms associated with Allergic Contact Dermatitis


Contact dermatitis symptoms depend upon the cause and the level of sensitivity to the substance that causes the reaction.

Symptoms associated with Allergic Contact Dermatitis include: Dry, scaly, flaky skin hives, oozing or dry blisters, redness, skin that appears darkened or leathery, skin that burns with or without sores, extreme itching, sun sensitivity, swelling, especially in the eyes, face, or groin areas.

Irritant Contact Dermatitis may cause slightly different symptoms, such as blistering, cracking skin due to extreme dryness, swelling skin that feels stiff or tightened, ulcerations, open sores that form crusts.

contact dermatitis treatment

Treatment: Self-care

For blistering, you can apply a cold moist compress for 30 minutes, 3 times a day.

- Calamine lotion may relieve itching.

- Oral antihistamines such as diphenhydramine (Benadryl, Ben-Allergin) can relieve itching. Avoid scratching.

- Immediately after exposure to a known allergen or irritant, wash with soap and cool water to remove or inactivate most of the offending substance.

- For mild cases that cover a relatively small area, hydrocortisone cream in nonprescription strength may be sufficient.

- Weak acidic solutions (lemon juice, vinegar) can be used to counteract the effects of dermatitis contracted by exposure to basic irritants.

- A shielding lotion can help protect the skin and retain moisture.

Contact Dermatitis lotion

Treatment: Medical Care

If the rash does not improve or continues to spread after 2–3 of days of self-care, or if the itching and/or pain is severe, the patient should contact a dermatologist or other physician. Medical treatment usually consists of lotions, creams, or oral medications.

- A corticosteroid medication similar to hydrocortisone may be prescribed to combat inflammation in a localized area. It may be applied to the skin as a cream or ointment. If the reaction covers a relatively large portion of the skin or is severe, a corticosteroid in pill or injection form may be prescribed.

- In severe cases, a stronger medicine like halobetasol may be prescribed by a dermatologist.

- Antihistamines. Prescription antihistamines may be given if non-prescription strengths are inadequate.

Real Testimonials

Glove In A Bottle Is Guarantee to Work!

"I just started work recently, I worked in a factory that uses powder-like materials to make our products every day. After a few days at work, I begin to realize that I was breaking out all over my body. A red rash, allergic reaction to something eczema-like rashes. It was itching really bad. None of us could figure out what it was or what trigger it. I tried all the anti-itching lotion out there but none work. One day, a coworker said, “have you try gloves in a bottle”? So I order one online and tried it and wow it was amazing. No more itch, no more rashes, breakout, and the best part it lasts all day. Just apply once and you are done for the day. I now used it every day before work and the rest is history!"

Large Scaly Patches Disappeared

“At 35 years of age, both of my hands developed scaly, dry areas, mostly on the palm side of the hands and fingers, especially the fingertips. After suffering with persistent itching and bleeding, I visited a doctor about it. The doctor believes that there is something that I’m touching with my hands to which I have developed an allergy. He prescribed “Diprolene”, but was careful to give me a number of dire warnings about how this was very strong medicine, not meant for prolonged use.

The Diprolene did handle the problem, but even if my hands appeared to be completely healed, as soon as I stopped using “Diprolene”, the symptoms would quickly return. This was no long-term solution, so I began trying an assortment of different skin care products from pharmacies, Avon, health food stores, taking vitamin E, etc.

I even tried wearing gloves most of the day to avoid touching anything with the skin of my hands. I’m sure you can imagine how ridiculous I felt walking around with gloves on in the San Antonio summer, plus -it did nothing whatsoever to help the situation. In a nutshell, some of these things made the problem more bearable, but nothing was really helping to heal the problem.

I saw “Gloves In A Bottle” at a Walgreen’s pharmacy in San Antonio, Texas. I bought some and tried it. At first, I really didn’t think that it was doing very much. This product isn’t a moisturizer, like everything else that I tried to use, so it didn’t feel like it was doing anything.

However, the affected skin on my fingers and palms seemed to be slowly improving as long as I was faithful in using this product. I reached a point at which the large scaly patches basically disappeared and my fingers no longer cracked and bled in a few weeks. A few more weeks, and the dry itchy skin on my hands appeared to be nearly perfect again. Thanks!”

Itchy Skin

“I am 65 years old and had never had any skin problems until two years ago when the doctors took me off of my hormone pills. I began to notice dry itchy skin, especially on the trunk area and particularly in the winter months. I bought different soaps, creams, lotions, powders and whatever over the counter medications for dry itchy skin I could find. None seemed to give me any relief. I had never been to a dermatologist, but decided maybe this was it. I made an appointment but couldn’t get in for a month.

So in the meantime I started searching the internet for a solution and literally stumbled across Gloves in a Bottle. I placed an order and it came quickly. I started using your lotion and by the time I went for my appointment with the dermatologist my skin had cleared up. I make a point to keep it on hand now.”

Hydropic Dermatitis

“For me your product is “Miracle” in a bottle. I’ve had problem hands off and on for many years. Treatments varied but all were in effective in controlling or healing the problems I experienced with my hands.

Fortunately, my sister had a sample of Gloves in a Bottle and offered me some. I checked out the website and was initially discouraged when I didn’t see any images of hands as bad as mine, but the testimonials made me hopeful. I had just applied a series of creams and ointments to aid in the therapy and healing of my hands and was very anxious to read the instructions of “Wash your hands first” as soap and water were not friendly to me.

To my astonishment, within seconds of applying Gloves in a Bottle, the redness of my hands was significantly reduced; and so was the discomfort!! I have continued to use this product and have not had an outbreak since.

The condition that my physician finally diagnosed me with is hydropic dermatitis which has no known cause but affects females and is stress related. It very much mimics contact dermatitis and eczema.

I keep a bottle close to me at all times! Thanks for making this amazing product!!”

Nickel Allergy - Took 9 Days to Heal

"I suffer the form of Nickel allergy that affects every aspect of my life, not just the rash of wearing cheap jewelry. I have had to change my whole lifestyle as nickel is added to food, the soil, and for its cheapness to most products. This causes me suffering and it usually comes out on my hands as dermatitis and eczema. I am a semptress (seamstress) and you can’t buy a nickel free hand sewing needle at all. I found information about this product and thought I would give it a try when my hands were sore. Not only did this product help clear my hands, but it also provided the barrier to allow me to continue sewing at the same time. I advise all who suffer like I do to give this lotion a try, it took 9 days to heal.”

For My Face

“This is the best stuff I have ever used… last year after having a medical doctor give me a sample of your product to my surprise it worked miraculously! After having worked out in the yard of my new house, the bromeliads (I realize I am allergic to them) had scratched my arms and caused me to break out in a rash due to an allergic reaction (contact dermatitis – editor’s note). The following Monday one of my doctors gave me a sample of your product, unfortunately, I just put it in my drawer (for about 6 months) and ended up using an antibiotic cream which took forever to get rid of. Then one day as I was going through my drawer I noticed it and read about how it works. I started using it on my face because knowing that if it protects my skin from moisture loss without hindering it from producing more moisture, why not? Isn’t that why we spend mega bucks on beauty moisturizers that are only superficial? I called your office to tell you how great the product worked and thought everyone in the world should know. You see, I did not want to ever be without this product. I even ordered samples from your company so that I could distribute them to the medical doctors that I called on.

Just weeks ago when I was out in my yard again and having gotten scratched by the bromeliads I decided to use your product on my arms and within 2-3 days my arms were healed… wow!

One of the doctors I gave a sample to said that there was an ingredient in your product that is very costly and helps with skin disorders… told him where to find it at Walgreens for his patients… I have felt that your product was not being to promoted so that everyone who needs this is no able to experience the benefits…I have told the girls at Walgreens that they need to have it in the pharmacy and the cosmetic department, and explained to them how and why it works… this product is something that I do not want to ever be without because of the wonderful results… it only makes sense…”

Best Lotion

"I’ve been suffering with dermatitis for months, been using creams from doctors but haven’t cleared it up. Within a couple of days of using Gloves in a Bottle, my fingers are the best they’ve been for months, they are calm and not Ifor irritated anymore. I’m going to continue using this product along with my prescribed cream until it completely clears up. It feels as though it leaves a protective coating on your hands and would be good in the winter when most people suffer with dry and sore hands."

Contact Dermatitis and Blisters

“I am 43 years old and have always had severe eczema and contact dermatitis. I have never known what is like to have hands without blisters or cuts. My 12 year old niece saw Gloves In A Bottle in a store in Canada while traveling with her parents. She questioned the clerk about the product and became convinced that this was the cure for her Aunties hands. She immediately contacted me when she arrived home, so excited that she had made this discovery. Reluctantly, I told her that I would give it a try (since I had tried everything else under the sun).

Within one week my hands had cleared. I had a severe patch on my right palm for nine months. It was gone in one week!! I have never been able to do the dishes without repercussions, peel an orange or slice a tomato among many other things. Last night I washed dishes by hand, peeled an orange and broke it into slices. NO BLISTERS or SEVERE ITCHING!! Thank you so much for marketing this product. I have convinced many people over this past week, today especially, that they needed to try my new discovery.

I work in a school setting and many are asking where to buy and how much. So we have already placed an order for more. If ever there is a doubt in someone’s mind, my hands can truly be a testimony as to how well this works. “

Software Engineer/Dry Cuticles

“My husband is a software engineer and has really dry cuticles that peel and crack but hates anything that makes his fingers sticky or greasy because it makes his keyboard nasty. He has tried many different products but this is the first one he has nothing negative to say about. Now he just needs to remember to use it.”

Constant Hand washing, Harmful Effects of Chemicals

“I had a rave success from a pharmacy tech who is also a hairdresser. He gets a reaction from latex gloves (latex contact dermatitis – ed.note) and cannot wear other types of gloves because they roll up with the hair when he does perms and it is impossible. Hair dye is also a problem. With Gloves In A Bottle he is able to avoid gloves altogether and does much finer and quicker work on perms and dyes while avoiding the harmful effects of chemicals. He likes it for his work in the pharmacy because they wash their hands constantly because sick people sneeze and cough all over the prescriptions they hand to the pharmacy staff. Gloves In A Bottle allows them to wash their hands often without the drying effects of the soaps they use. Never have I used a product like yours. I used to work for a Fortune 500 Cosmetic Company so I have used a lot of skin care products. Gloves in a Bottle is the best lotion I have ever used.”

- Tanya Ladoucer

No Re-occurrence of the Skin Allergies

“Your product has been a total life-saver for me. Upon the beginning use of your product over a year ago, I have had a total remission of the latex dermatitis that was plaguing me until that time. Upon continuous use of the lotion, I have had no re-occurrence of the skin allergies. I have no further symptoms, and will be forever grateful for your product.”

- Arnold H. Stern, DDS

Great Gift for Cold Winter Weather

"Living in cold winter climates, especially if you have baseboard heaters, can often mean horribly dry air and cracked, bleeding, sore skin. I have two family members with skin issues (cracked and bleeding knuckles all winter in one case, and cracked peeling sore and red feet in the other case). I gave them both a bottle for Christmas, and threw in one for a friend as well, and I’ve heard nothing but great reports from everyone. It does not have much of a smell at all, which was a big bonus for the one family member who is super-sensitive to scented products. I have a feeling we’ll all be using it going forward."
