Contact (skin) dermatitis, a form of eczematous dermatitis, caused by the use of facial cosmetics. Eczematous dermatitis may result from direct irritation of the skin by a substance such as a chemical, or an allergic reaction to a particular substance that has been in contact with the skin, injected or taken by mouth. The skin becomes red and itchy, and small blisters which weep and become crusted, may also develop. Subsequent scaling, thickening and discolouration of the skin may follow.
