BACKGROUND: Solvent Orange (SO) 60 is a perinone-type dye that is often used in plastic materials such as spectacle frames and has been shown to cause contact allergy. The first case of SO 60 allergic contact dermatitis caused by spectacle frames was reported in 1999, and the second in 2011. We have recently seen 10 patients, of whom 6 developed dermatitis in the retroauricular/temporal area after wearing plastic spectacles. OBJECTIVES: To report the cause of the dermatitis in the 10 patients and to describe our first case with occupational SO 60 contact allergy...

REVIEW
Alexandra Leonard, Emma Guttman-Yassky
Irritant contact dermatitis (ICD) and allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) are common skin disorders that are characterized by inflammation, oozing, crusting, and pruritus. Atopic dermatitis (AD) is an inflammatory skin disease characterized by immune and barrier abnormalities and is additionally a risk factor for acquiring ICD and ACD. New work on allergic sensitization to common allergens (e.g., nickel and fragrance) in human skin has shown that different allergens have distinct molecular fingerprinting. For example, nickel promotes strong Th1/Th17 polarization, whereas fragrance allergy causes Th2/Th22 skewing, which is similar to the phenotype of AD...

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...

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...

BACKGROUND: Historically, allergic contact dermatitis caused by hexavalent chromium [Cr(VI)] in cement was the most common cause of invalidity attributable to skin disease in Sweden. Since the legislation to reduce Cr(VI) in cement was introduced in 1989, we rarely see allergic contact dermatitis caused by cement. OBJECTIVES: To examine the frequency of contact allergy to Cr(VI) in southern Sweden in 2005-2014. METHODS: We investigated the occurrence of positive reactions to potassium dichromate 0...

In the past decade, new diabetes technologies, including continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) systems, support patients with diabetes in their daily struggle with achieving a good glucose control. However, shortly after the first CGM systems appeared on the market, also the first concerns about adverse skin reactions were raised. Most patients claimed to suffer from (sometimes severe) skin irritation, or even allergy, which they related to the (acrylate-based) adhesive part of the device. For a long time the actual substance that caused these skin reactions with, for example, the Flash Glucose Monitoring system (iscCGM; Freestyle® Libre) could not be identified; however, recently Belgian and Swedish dermatologists reported that the majority of their patients that have developed a contact-allergic while using iscCGM react sensitively to a specific acrylate, that is, isobornyl acrylate (IBOA)...

Paraphenylenediamine (PPD) is an amine that is mainly used as an ingredient in hair dyes and henna tattoos. The incidence of allergic contact dermatitis to PPD is increasing, particularly in younger patients. In this article, we review the main sources of PPD and the substances with which it can interact and present a practical algorithm for diagnosing and treating suspected cases of PPD allergy.

Methylisothiazolinone (MI) is commonly used as a preservative in personal care products and is a frequent cause of allergic contact dermatitis. We present a patient with allergic contact dermatitis caused by MI in hair care products and discuss this allergen to bring attention to this common cause of contact dermatitis, and to highlight its frequent use in hair care products. If allergy to MI is suspected, testing should be performed to this individual preservative, as testing solely for the combination preservative, methylisothiazolinone/methylchloroisothiazolinone (Kathon CG®), may miss many cases of MI allergy...
