What Is Contact Dermatitis?
Contact dermatitis is among the most common skin conditions that can affect adults and children at any given time of the year. In fact, patients from all over Brentwood, Franklin, and Antioch, TN visit Brentwood Skin Clinic for treatment year-round. Dermatitis is a basic term for a condition that can present itself in many different ways after coming in contact with an allergen. The most obvious symptoms include skin that is flaky, crusty, itchy, red, and at times blistered. Dermatologist Dr. Austin Mitchell will evaluate your skin, determine what is causing the breakout, and recommend a proper therapy in addition to a regimen to follow to avoid additional flare-ups. For more information, schedule a consultation with Dr. Mitchell at our Nashville, TN office.
How Is Contact Dermatitis Treated?
Since every patient's contact dermatitis symptoms vary, treatments can fluctuate significantly and should be decided upon once Dr. Mitchell thoroughly assesses the condition. If the cause of your contact dermatitis is unknown, he will begin by discussing your symptoms to get a better idea of what caused the reaction. He may recommend taking a patch test where small amounts of allergens are placed on the skin to determine your allergy. Once the cause of your contact dermatitis is determined, we can help treat it. Dr. Mitchell can prescribe corticosteroid ointments to be applied to affected areas. Some patients benefit from a topical steroid treatment or an oral corticosteroid. Depending on your diagnosis, Dr. Mitchell will be able to create a treatment plan to help reduce your symptoms.

Very awesome and friendly staff. Everyone greeted me, made sure I felt comfortable, and took care of everything I asked them to do. Will definitely be back if I need more things looked at.
Had a concern regarding a small bumpy scar on my leg. Visited based on the Google reviews. Reputation is well earned! Dr. Mitchell was knowledgeable and personable. Took care of my issue that day and his office followed up with me when the standard biopsy came back with good news! Highly recommend!
