Facial dermatitis (FD) is a common problem encountered in clinical practice. It effects patients' self-esteem and quality of life. Mild reactions such as itching, pricking, dryness can occur in more than 10% of patients[1]. Recurrence is common in FD. The cause of FD is often difficult to determine. Metals, cosmetics, air pollution and physical factors such as wind or changes in temperature and humidity in the environment may all contribute to the development of FD[2]. Patch test is useful in establishing the identification of FD[1,2]...

BACKGROUND: Prenatal maternal stress may influence offspring's atopic risk through sustained cortisol secretion resulting from activation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-axis (HPA), leading to Th2-biased cell differentiation in the fetus. We undertook a systematic review and meta-analysis investigating the relationship between prenatal maternal psychosocial stress and risk of asthma and allergy in the offspring. METHODS: We searched 11 electronic databases from 1960 to 2016, search the grey literature, and contacted experts in the field...

Basophils have been recently recognized to play important roles in type 2 immune responses during allergies and parasitic infection, largely due to the development of novel tools for the in vivo study of these cells. As such, the genetically-engineered MCPT8DTR mouse line has been used to specifically deplete basophils following treatment with diphtheria toxin (DT). In this study, we showed that DT-injected MCPT8DTR mice exhibited a striking decrease of eosinophils and neutrophils in skin when subjected to a hapten fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC)-induced allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) experimental protocol...

Immunoglobulin E (IgE) is involved in the onset of allergic reaction, and the suppression of IgE production leads to alleviation of allergic symptoms. We found that mango peel ethanol extract (MPE) significantly suppresses IgE production by human myeloma cell line U266 cells, suggesting that MPE has an anti-allergic effect by inhibiting the production of IgE. Although mangiferin is contained in mango, which suppresses IgE production by U266 cells, it was not contained in MPE. We investigated the suppressive effect of MPE in 2,4-dinitrofluorobenzene (DNFB)-induced allergic contact dermatitis model mice...

REVIEW
Ahmad Oryan, Esmat Alemzadeh, Ali Moshiri
Propolis is a resinous mixture that honey bees collect from the tree buds, sap flows, or other botanical sources. The chemical composition of propolis varies and depends on the geographical area, time of collection, seasonality, illumination, altitude, and food availability during propolis exploitation. The goal of this review is to discuss important concepts including mechanisms of action and therapeutic activities of propolis. The PubMed, ScienceDirect, and Cochrane Library databases were searched for the literature published from January the 1st 2000 to October the 1st 2017...

A B Simonsen, J D Johansen, M Deleuran, C G Mortz, L Skov, M Sommerlund
BACKGROUND: Whether children with atopic dermatitis have an altered risk of contact allergy than children without atopic dermatitis is frequently debated and studies have been conflicting. Theoretically, the impaired skin barrier in atopic dermatitis (AD) facilitates the penetration of potential allergens and several authors have highlighted the risk of underestimating and overlooking contact allergy in children with atopic dermatitis. OBJECTIVE: To determine the prevalence of contact allergy in Danish children with atopic dermatitis and explore the problem of unacknowledged allergies maintaining or aggravating the skin symptoms...

Contact allergies are common cause of eczema in all age groups and are one of the most common causes of occupational disability. Contact dermatitis can be divided into irritant and allergic contact dermatitis. Distinguishing between irritant and allergic triggers of contact dermatitis by clinical and histologic examinations can be challenging. The approach to patients with contact dermatitis should consist of a detailed (work and leisure) history, skin examination, patch tests with allergens based on history, physical examination, education on materials that contain the allergen and adequate therapy and prevention...

Esen Özkaya, Sıla Kılıç
BACKGROUND: Polyethylene glycols (PEGs) and propylene glycol (PG) are used as vehicles in various medicinal and cosmetic products. They are potential contact sensitizers, including low molecular weight PEGs in nitrofurazone preparations that are still widely used in Turkey. OBJECTIVES: To investigate the prevalence of allergic contact dermatitis caused by PEG and PG in a relatively large group of patients in Turkey. METHODS: In this retrospective, cross-sectional, single-centre study, 836 patients patch tested with PEG and PG between 1996 and 2015 were reviewed...

The main allergen responsible for contact dermatitis to nail polish is tosylamide-formaldehyde resin. The so-called hypoallergenic nail polishes are suposedly free of agents that commonly trigger reactions. The commercially available products and their compositions were studied. It was observed that most brands present at least one component capable of triggering the disease; therefore, allergic reaction may occur even when hypoallergenic polishes are used. There should be a proper investigation of the specific allergen through a patch test, because more than one component can cause an allergy, and we need to check the exact composition of each product...

BACKGROUND: The use of metal-containing bio-devices is becoming increasingly common. Self-reported history of dermatitis with metal exposure is not established as being predictive for metal allergy. OBJECTIVES: To assess the validity of two screening questions addressing metal allergy. METHODS: At Massachusetts General Hospital Contact Dermatitis Clinic, 2132 consecutive patients were asked either 'Do you get rashes when jewellery touches your skin' (Q1; N = 1816) or 'Do you get rashes when metal touches your skin?' (Q2; N = 316) before being patch tested...

BACKGROUND: Compositae dermatitis was originally described as airborne contact dermatitis. More recent studies have reported a wider clinical spectrum, but often in polysensitized patients. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the clinical features of patients sensitized to Compositae only. PATIENTS/METHODS: Consecutive Compositae-sensitive eczema patients, tested between 1990 and 2015, who, at the patch testing session diagnosing their Compositae allergy, were found to be sensitized only to the plant family, were included...

Rachel K Severin, Donald V Belsito
BACKGROUND: Alkyl glucoside surfactants, present in many cosmetic products, can cause allergic contact dermatitis. Decyl glucoside has been part of the North American Contact Dermatitis Group standard allergen panel since 2009. OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to identify rates and relevance of positive patch test reactions to decyl and lauryl glucosides and to determine how well one of these glucosides screens for contact allergic reactions to the other. METHODS: A retrospective analysis was performed on 897 patients suspected of having a cosmetic-related dermatitis and patch tested with both decyl and lauryl glucosides between 2009 and 2016...
