Dermatitis is a medical condition that causes various skin problems like itching, inflammation, and irritation. Dermatitis can affect any part of the body including the scalp and limbs.

Various dermatitis treatments are available depending on the exact type of dermatitis the patient is suffering from. Treatment for seborrheic dermatitis may be different from psoriasis treatment.

The following are ways to treat dermatitis:

1. Various nutrients like vitamins D and E and minerals zinc and selenium help treat eczema and seborrheic dermatitis. These nutrients also boost the immune system. Add them to your regular diet or take them in the form of supplements.
2. Reducing stress by various methods like yoga or tai chi has been shown to improve the treatment of dermatitis.
3. Avoid foods that you may be allergic to like peanuts, gluten, alcohol, or dairy.
4. Reducing the number of showers you take is a good way to treat dermatitis as the body requires a lot of moisture and bathing less frequently increases the oil concentration in the skin.
