A rash on the face of young girl caused by an allergic reaction to Halloween face paint. This reaction, called contact dermatitis, occurs when the body's immune system reacts to a foreign substance as though it were a disease-causing organism. The skin becomes painfully inflamed and red. The most effective treatment is to avoid contact with the substance responsible. Severe inflammation can be reduced with corticosteroid drugs.
