Contact dermatitis and Getting Social Security Disability
Can I get Social Security Disability for contact dermatitis? You are probably asking this question because you have contact dermatitis, and it and/or complications resulting from it or other related conditions you have in conjunction with it are why you are disabled, unable to work and in need of financial assistance.
Dermatitis is a condition in which your skin becomes swollen, sore and red. In some cases, dermatitis is marked by small blisters appearing on your skin. Dermatitis is brought about by direct irritation of your skin by an external agent or an allergic reaction to it.
Dermatitis is used to refer to a broad range of disorders. Contact dermatitis is one of the forms of dermatitis.

Contact dermatitis is not life-threatening or contagious. However, the disorder can be very uncomfortable.
