Allergic contact dermatitis to metals has become increasingly recognized in patients with endovascular implants. The ACD can lead to in-stent restenosis as well as a prominent eczematous reaction overlying the implant, often necessitating its removal. We present a case of refractory allergic contact dermatitis to nickel in a 44-year-old man with numerous endovascular stents and vascular clips. He developed numerous adverse effects of systemic therapy to manage his symptoms including recurrent infections leading to frequent hospitalizations...

BACKGROUND: Despite being widely reported by patients with atopic dermatitis (AD), pain symptoms, unlike itch, have not been widely assessed. OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to understand the distinct pain symptoms in patients with AD. METHODS: Responses from an anonymous questionnaire were collected from our eczema clinic (in-person survey) and collaboration with Global Parents for Eczema Research Group and the National Eczema Association (online survey) to assess skin pain among patients with AD 5 years and older...

BACKGROUND: Pigmented cosmetic dermatitis (PCD) is frequently encountered in dark-skinned individuals as gradual hyperpigmentation on the face without preceding erythema or itching. Little is known about the allergen profile in PCD. OBJECTIVES: The aim of the study was to describe the clinical profile and common allergens in PCD and allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) to cosmetics in Delhi. METHODS: Records of patients suspected of PCD and ACD to cosmetics were analyzed...

BACKGROUND: Little is known about the impact of sleep disturbances (SD) or sleep-related impairment (SRI) in adults with AD or their relationship with severity of AD and itch and other predictors. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between AD severity, SD, and SRI. METHODS: We conducted a prospective online questionnaire-based study of 287 adults with AD, including assessment of AD severity by Patient-Oriented Eczema Measure, self-reported global AD severity, Self-Assessed Eczema Area and Severity Index and visual analog scale-itch, Patient-Reported Outcome Measurement Information System SD and SRI individual items, and T scores...

BACKGROUND: Dose/area and reading paradigms for gold patch testing are controversial and not standardized worldwide. OBJECTIVES: The aims of this study were to determine the optimum patch test dose of gold sodium thiosulfate (GST) in a hydrogel (HYD) and to establish GST HYD safety/efficacy and further characterize normal morphology and time course of GST reactions. METHODS: Twenty gold-allergic patients were patch tested with a dilution series of GST HYD and with GST 2% petrolatum (pet)...

Allergic contact dermatitis is an important diagnostic consideration in the evaluation of patients presenting with vulvar complaints. The high prevalence of contact sensitization in the vulvar region is likely multifactorial. We review the extant literature regarding key predisposing factors in the pathogenesis of vulvar allergic contact dermatitis, as well as the most commonly implicated allergens as identified by a number of retrospective studies and case series. On the basis of our findings, we provide diagnostic and therapeutic recommendations for practicing clinicians...

BACKGROUND: Contact dermatitis to hair dyes remains a health concern. Regulations in many countries require consumer self-testing for hair dyes, but no standardized procedure exists. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to develop a self-test protocol for an allergy alert test (AAT) that can elicit a self-noticeable alert signal in p-phenylenediamine (PPD)-allergic consumers. METHODS: Simulating consumer use conditions (open application after mixing with a developer for 45 minutes), PPD-positive hair dye-allergic subjects and PPD-negative control subjects were tested on the forearm and behind the ear with experimental products containing 0...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Allergic contact dermatitis is a common dermatosis among military personnel. Given the unique military demands, it is not surprising that shoe dermatitis and textile dermatitis are common. Our study aimed to compare the clinical and demographic parameters between military personnel and civilians evaluated for the suspicion of shoe and textile dermatitis in a tertiary clinic in Israel. METHODS: This retrospective cross-sectional study included 295 patients who were referred to a tertiary clinic for evaluation because of suspected shoe or textile dermatitis...

BACKGROUND: Sometimes, patients with a history of metal intolerance react negatively or doubtfully to nickel at patch testing. OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to investigate whether aqueous nickel sulfate hexahydrate at 15% and 30% traces more contact allergy than the nickel preparation in the baseline series at 5%. METHODS: In the period 1995-2015, more than 800 of 16,059 patients with a negative or doubtful patch test reaction to the petrolatum preparation of nickel at 5% on the day 3 reading were additionally tested with aqueous nickel at 15% and/or 30%...

BACKGROUND: Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a common disease, which involves a disruption of the skin barrier function. Skin ceramide (CER) composition, which plays crucial roles in maintaining the barrier function of the stratum corneum, is changed in patients with AD. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to identify and quantify skin CER subclasses in association with disease severity in pediatric patients with AD. METHODS: Two hundred thirteen patients were entered into the observational study...

Allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) is a common skin disease that results in significant cost and morbidity. Despite its high prevalence, therapeutic options are limited. Allergic contact dermatitis is regulated primarily by T cells within the adaptive immune system, but also by natural killer and innate lymphoid cells within the innate immune system. The chemokine receptor system, consisting of chemokine peptides and chemokine G protein-coupled receptors, is a critical regulator of inflammatory processes such as ACD...

BACKGROUND: Present screening methods to rapidly detect release of nickel and cobalt ions from metallic surfaces involve colorimetric dimethylglyoxime (DMG)- and disodium-1-nitroso-2-naphthol-3,6-disulfonate-based spot tests with a cotton bud. There is a risk of false-negative test reactions because test outcomes are dependent on the pressure, area, and duration of surface wiping. OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to develop a miniaturized electrochemical device that uses a voltage to accelerate nickel and cobalt release from the tested item and perform an initial validation...
