- Contact dermatitis – this simple skin condition is usually quite easy to clear up and may occur after repeated exposure to certain chemicals and substances. It usually appears as a red rash that irritates the skin and that can become inflamed and painful. One common example of those who get it is in the medical field, with latex allergies. If you have a latex allergy and your employer does not provide an alternative, you may have an accident injury claim in Holt.
- Environmental eczema – have you ever noticed a rash on your skin that only gets red and itchy when you are at work? It may be the case that you are suffering from eczema that is worsened by environmental factors. This happens to people who work in confined spaces with certain chemicals and can be very sore and itchy.
