(HealthDay News) -- Eczema, also called contact dermatitis, can occur when the skin touches a substance that triggers an allergic reaction. Though actual substances vary by person, common triggers include fragrances used in perfumes or chemicals used in sunscreens.
The Cleveland Clinic offers these suggestions to help avoid a flare of allergic eczema:
  • Avoid exposure to any substance that triggers a skin rash.
  • If you do come into contact with an allergic substance, promptly wash affected skin.
  • Learn how to identify and avoid triggers such as poison ivy or poison oak.
