Certain irritants can cause a rash or allergic reaction on the skin. This is known as contact dermatitis. If you are allergic to a substance, simply touching it can result in a red rash or blisters that can be painful or itch. Contact dermatitis is extremely common with thousands of possible triggers. Our medical dermatology team at LM Medical NYC can offer a diagnosis and provide contact dermatitis treatment at our medical clinic in Manhattan.

The body can become allergic to almost anything, and some of the substances can cause a skin reaction, or contact dermatitis. In some cases, the rash or blisters are almost instant, while others may take a day or longer to form. There are many irritants to which most people will have an allergic reaction when in contact, including many plant oils like those from poison ivy, poison oak and nettles. Other common substances that cause contact dermatitis include:

  • Nickel
  • Chemicals and fragrances in skincare products
  • Rubber or latex
  • Chromates found in leather, cements, paints and other products
  • Dyes

Contact dermatitis can be caused by such a wide variety of substances that it is sometimes difficult to determine the cause. Seeking treatment can help identify allergic triggers and offer options to control skin outbreaks.

Diagnosing Allergic Contact Dermatitis

If you are not sure what is causing an allergic reaction on your skin or want treatment to control outbreaks, come visit us at LM Medical NYC. Renowned skin expert Dr. Morgan Rabach is a board certified dermatologist who can render a diagnosis about what is causing your rash and provide treatments for relief. If the allergen is not known, patch testing can be performed to identify the allergen to help avoid the substance. In addition, chronic contact dermatitis may be best controlled with medications to minimize outbreaks.

If you have reoccurring skin rashes, you may have a form of contact dermatitis. Contact us at LM Medical NYC for a diagnosis and treatment for allergic contact dermatitis at our clinic in Greenwich Village.

Dr. Lesley Rabach is incredible at what she does, she recommends small adjustments that look so natural but also give a noticeable result. Beyond that, she's absolutely lovely to be around and the entire energy of her office is so pleasant! I'll be turning to her for her recommendations go forward, it's SO important to find a plastic surgeon you can really trust. She is it! Thank you!

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Chris B.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Xavier M.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!

Fun, safe and the results were perfect. Can’t wait for my next procedure!
