Treatment for both types of contact dermatitis is the same. Even with treatment, it can take several weeks for the rash to go away. Treatments include:

  • Avoidance: If you can figure out what’s causing the rash, take steps to avoid it or minimize exposure.
  • Anti-itch creams: Corticosteroid creams can ease inflammation and itching.
  • Oral steroids: Prednisone, a type of steroid, can relieve rash symptoms that don’t respond to antihistamines or other treatments.
  • Immunosuppressive medications: In severe cases, where repeated bouts of oral steroids are needed.
