INTRODUCTION: Allergic contact dermatitis around chronic leg ulcers (CLU) is a common complication in patients presenting CLU and prolongs healing times. The aim of this study was to describe the rate of sensitization to modern dressings (MD) used in these patients and to assess whether there is a relation between the number of sensitizations and ulcer type, the time from onset of the ulcer, and patient age and gender. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We conducted a retrospective study at Reims University Hospital between 2010 and 2014 that included all patients with CLU of vascular etiology surrounded by eczematous lesions, and who had one of the patch-tests in the following 3 series: European baseline±leg ulcers±corticosteroids...

BACKGROUND: Cosmetic products are commonly marketed using dermatologic terms such as "hypoallergenic," "non-comedogenic," "fragrance-free," etc. The clinical relevance of these claims can be confusing to both patients and clinicians. METHODS: A systematic review was performed from via a PubMed search of published articles from January 1985 to October 2017 to further describe and elucidate the clinical utility of a predefined list of common dermatologic terms used by pharmaceutical companies to market over the counter products...

Skin lesion which develops after deep sea diving is termed as coral dermatitis. The corals are known to produce a toxic substance which when comes in to contact with human skin may elicit hypersensitive reactions. Most previous reports highlight the allergic reactions caused by deep sea diving. This is a rare case of staphylococcal skin infection in a second-year medical student caused by Staphylococcus aureus ; he reported a history of deep sea diving before being presented to the hospital with skin rashes...

BACKGROUND: Nickel is a common allergen responsible for allergic contact dermatitis. OBJECTIVE: To characterize nickel sensitivity in children and compare pediatric cohorts (≤5, 6-12, and 13-18 years). METHODS: Retrospective, cross-sectional analysis of 1894 pediatric patients patch tested by the North American Contact Dermatitis Group from 1994 to 2014. We evaluated demographics, rates of reaction to nickel, strength of nickel reactions, and nickel allergy sources...

Allergic contact dermatitis is associated with significant disease and economic burden in the United States. To properly manage allergic contact dermatitis, it is important to accurately identify the substance(s) implicated in the dermatitis to prevent disease recurrence. The commercially available T.R.U.E Test (36 allergens) screening panel has been reported to have a conservative hypothetical allergen detection rate of 66.0%, at most. Importantly, these calculations are based on the 78% of patients who had clinically relevant reactions to allergens present on the North American Contact Dermatitis Group screening series (70 allergens), without the use of supplemental allergens...

Importance: Allergic diseases are prevalent in childhood. Early exposure to medications that can alter the microbiome, including acid-suppressive medications and antibiotics, may influence the likelihood of allergy. Objective: To determine whether there is an association between the use of acid-suppressive medications or antibiotics in the first 6 months of infancy and development of allergic diseases in early childhood. Design, Setting, and Participants: A retrospective cohort study was conducted in 792 130 children who were Department of Defense TRICARE beneficiaries with a birth medical record in the Military Health System database between October 1, 2001, and September 30, 2013, with continued enrollment from within 35 days of birth until at least age 1 year...

AIM: To quantify the anti-inflammatory potency of topical corticosteroids and topical calcineurin inhibitors by measuring the contact allergic response to a diphenylcyclopropenone (DPCP) challenge in de novo sensitized human volunteers. METHODS: Two randomized, double-blind, vehicle-controlled studies were performed encompassing 76 volunteers; 29 in the first and 47 in the second studies. Topical drugs were applied pre- and/or post-treatment in block designs. The compounds were tested simultaneously under occluded patch tests covering DPCP-induced dermatitis...

BACKGROUND: Cinnamyl alcohol is considered to be a prohapten and prehapten with cinnamal as the main metabolite. However, many individuals who are allergic to cinnamyl alcohol do not react to cinnamal. Sensitizing epoxides of cinnamyl alcohol and cinnamal have been identified as metabolites and autoxidation products of cinnamyl alcohol. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the clinical relevance of contact allergy to epoxycinnamyl alcohol and epoxycinnamal. METHODS: Irritative effects of the epoxides were investigated in 12 dermatitis patients...

Allergic contact dermatitis commonly affects patients with chronic venous leg ulcers and can contribute to impaired wound healing. Many allergens have been identified, and despite the use of advanced dressings, the incidence of allergy has remained high. We discuss an unusual presentation of allergic contact dermatitis in a patient with a chronic wound. The patient's history was consistent with a recurrent venous leg ulcer, but on this occasion, the wound continued to deteriorate despite optimal treatment. This prompted further investigation, which included patch testing...

Venous leg ulcers are the most common form of non-healing leg ulcers. They are subjected to treatments such as topical medications, dressings, and compression therapies. This can lead to exposure to a number of allergens with subsequent sensitisation and contact dermatitis of the regional skin. This may contribute to the poor ulcer healing. To detect the various contact sensitisers in patients with venous leg ulcers through patch testing, patients from 6 centres across India with venous leg ulcers of longer than 6 weeks duration were enrolled for the study...

BACKGROUND: Aircraft building exposes workers to irritant and sensitizing products. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this article was to study occupational dermatoses among aircraft workers over 25 years. METHODS: The files of aerospace workers referred between 1990 and 2015 were extracted from the database of the McGill University Health Centre contact dermatitis clinic. These were subdivided according to demographics, type of work, patch testing results, and final diagnosis...

BACKGROUND: Concomitant allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) has been described as a possible cause of atopic dermatitis (AD) becoming difficult-to-treat. However, contact sensitization in this patient group has barely been studied. OBJECTIVE: To study the occurrence of ACD in a population of difficult-to-treat AD children and adults. METHODS: Clinical and patch test information of 48 patients with difficult-to-treat AD unresponsive to conventional out-patient treatments was gathered retrospectively...

Introduction: Chronic itch has been drawing much attention due to its clinical significance and the complexity of its mechanisms. To facilitate the development of anti-itch strategies, it is necessary to investigate the key players in itch sensation under chronic itch conditions. Several members of the Mrgpr family were identified as itch receptors that detect cutaneous pruritogens in primary sensory neurons. However, the role of Mrgprs in chronic itch conditions has not been well described...
