Homeopathy for Skin allergy – Allergic contact dermatitis is an allergic response caused by a contact with the substance known as allergen. It is termed as Type IV delayed hypersensitivity reaction involving cell mediated allergic reaction. Sensatisation produces specific type of allergic antibodies by the immune system resulting in a positive allergy test. The sensatisation to an allergen begins when the body is first exposed to it, or sometimes even months or years before the onset of an allergic reaction, which is characterised by itching, erythema, vesiculation and scaling.
