New App Can Help You Avoid Dermatitis

Nine million. That’s how many people go to the doctor every year because of dermatitis. It’s an itchy, ugly rash you get when you’re allergic to things such as additives in skin lotions or detergents. And for many, trying to figure out which products are safe can be daunting.

A doctor at Mayo Clinic wants to change that. He’s developed a smart phone app called CARD (Contact Allergen Replacement Database) to make life a lot easier for people with dermatitis. The app lets you enter in the names of ingredients you know you’re allergic to and gives you a list of products that are safe to use. You can download the free CARD app at the iTunes store.
