Contact Dermatitis (cont.)

Contact Dermatitis Prognosis
If the substance causing the contact dermatitis is removed and you are not exposed to it again, your rash probably will disappear on its own in less than three weeks. Symptoms may go away sooner with treatment. Although your rash may have resolved, your immune system will always remember the chemical to which you were allergic. So, if you encounter it at some future time your rash is likely to recur.
