Can contact dermatitis be prevented?

Developing contact dermatitis in the first place cannot be avoided, but future cases can be prevented by maintaining good skin care habits and avoiding the substances or materials that cause it. Some common measures for prevention include wearing protective clothing and gloves, or covering buttons and fasteners on clothing with an iron-on patch.
