Brief Answer:
A type of eczema

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for asking.

Spongiotic Dermatitis is not much more than acute eczema with the long standing course.

A large part of initial spongiotic dermatitis treatment involves avoidance. Avoidance of known skin irritants be they chemicals in washing powders, elements in clothing or components of foods is all part of spongiotic dermatitis treatment.

Medications containing menthol as well as corticosteroid preparations are both used in spongiotic dermatitis treatment.
