Treatment for contact dermatitis. A ten year-old girl has diprobase cream applied to her hands to treat contact dermatitis. The girl has an itchy and blistering rash over the fingers of her hands. Contact dermatitis is a form of eczema caused by a toxic effect of a substance or due to an allergic reaction. Diprobase cream is a type of emollient, a cream that will sooth and moisten the dried skin in the area of the rash. The effect of the cream is short lived and frequent re-application is necessary.
