Dermatitis Story | Great Lakes Dermatology, 26 Dec 2011 [cached]
"It's any inflammation of the skin," said Dr. Steven Armus, a dermatologist with Great Lakes Dermatology. Eczema, which is also known as atopic dermatitis, is one of the most common forms of dermatitis and a common reason patients seek dermatological treatment.
The condition often causes itchy, dry, red, scaly patches on flexural surfaces (such as the back of knees or the inner part of the arm), although it can form anywhere on the body. It can become quite uncomfortable, keeping people up at night and potentially leading to infection of the affected skin. The rash often gets considerably worse in the winter and better in the summer. Patients with atopic dermatitis usually have a background of asthma, allergy or hay fever, Dr. Armus said. "This is a condition that can start anytime in life, from very young to very old," Dr. Armus said, adding that young kids may outgrow it but usually have sensitive skin issues throughout life."Patients with atopic dermatitis should use moisturizers and mild cleansers, like Dove or Oil of Olay. If that doesn't completely address the condition, a dermatologist can prescribe corticosteroid ointments, Dr. Armus said. The vast majority of patients respond to the topical steroid ointments, but some may need oral steroids, ultraviolet light treatments and, in some cases, treatment for secondary infections, he said.
Another common type of dermatitis is contact dermatitis, where a reaction occurs because of exposure to certain environmental allergens. This can often become a workplace issue, involving worker's compensation claims and work restrictions to avoid the allergen. Reactions can range from scaly rashes and swelling to oozing skin and infections. In some cases, the rash can become quite serious and systemic, affecting the mouth and breathing."Those people have to avoid contact with that irritant at all costs," Dr. Armus said.
Rashes from poison ivy are a form of contact dermatitis. It's the body's reaction to a toxin in the plant - anywhere a rash or blister formed, some of the toxin got on the skin. "Everybody who comes in contact with poison ivy over time will react at some point," Dr. Armus said. In the beginning, there might not be a reaction; it might occur two weeks later, he said. And as you contact it more and more, the reaction will come quicker and quicker. Treatment involves topical or oral corticosteroids. If a person has a rash from poison ivy, it's not contagious - only the plant's toxin causes a reaction. Also, Dr. Armus noted that patients in Wisconsin don't really have to worry about poison oak, which is virtually non-existent in the state. And poison sumac is something folks would encounter only in swampy areas. If contact occurs with poison ivy, washing off the toxins within a half hour can help diminish a reaction. Dr. Armus warns to be careful with clothing that contacted the plant; it can still carry the toxin.
Dr. Steven Armus was arrested ..., 7 April 2009 [cached]
Dr. Steven Armus was arrested during a traffic stop in Kenosha County last month. A sheriff's deputy says he found more than 26 grams of cocaine on Armus and in his car and more than $4,000 in cash.
Deputies say Armus told them he quit using cocaine last summer or fall and was picking up the drugs for some friends.
Armus is on staff at Great Lakes Dermatology, which has offices in Racine, Walworth, Kenosha and Milwaukee counties.

The main difference is the lack of scent in many of the male lines, according to Dr. Steven Armus, a dermatologist with Great Lakes Dermatology, 1515 S. Green Bay Road.Otherwise, men's skin requires pretty much the same ingredients that women's does, when it comes to cleansing and moisturizing.
"Men may tend to be a little more aggressive when it comes to treating their skin, but their skin needs the same kinds of care that a woman's does," he said.
There are some subtle differences between men's and women's skin due to the different hormonal make up, Armus said.Men's skin, for example, may be a little thicker because of testosterone levels.And more men than women tend to have jobs that require them to be out in the elements, which can increase their chances for dry skin and skin cancers.Men, in general, also tend to get worse cases of acne than women, but they also tend to outgrow it more quickly, he said.
"Men usually grow out of their acne after puberty, while women may have it into adulthood."
Sunscreen a must Like women, men can have different skin types - some dryer than others and some more sensitive, Armus said.And, like women, men should take care of their skin and protect it from things such as sun exposure.
"Using a moisturizer with an SPF15 sunscreen in it is the most important thing you can do to keep your skin looking young and healthy," he said.
And just because its winter, don't think you don't need sunscreen, the dermatologist said.Protection from the sun's rays is essential all year long.
Moisturizer should be applied at least twice a day, for maximum benefits.In the coldest months, when skin tends to get dryer, Armus said he sometimes moisturizes his skin three or four times a day.
"You can't over-moisturize your skin," he said, adding that most moisturizers today are labeled as non-comedic, meaning they won't clog pores, causing blemishes.
Men's daily skin-care routines also should include use of a mild, soap-free cleanser.Because soap will dry out the skin, it is better to wash with one of several soap-free cleansers on the market, such as Cetaphil, Armus said.
Smooth and clear There are things men can do when it comes to shaving to help improve their skin.
"Shaving is where the majority of men's skin problems come along," Armus said.
While the process of shaving creates daily exfoliation of the skin, which can sometimes leave a man's face even softer and also can create conditions ranging from dryness to ingrown hairs and other skin irritations.
One of the first steps toward preventing irritation is to use a shaving gel, rather than soap or cream, because gels tend to provide more lubrication, Armus said.It is also a good idea, if you are experiencing irritation or inflammation when shaving, to try shaving in a different direction, he said.
Keep in mind too, that most aftershave products on the market contain alcohol, which can dry the skin.These astringents will help to temporarily constrict pore size, but the result doesn't last long and the drying effects don't help the skin, Armus said.
