Protein contact dermatitis is a dermatosis which usually presents as a chronic eczema with episodic acute exacerbations a few minutes after contact with the offending allergen. Patch tests with the…
Contact allergy to oxidized d‐limonene among dermatitis patients
An increased UAT of d‐limonene containing allergenic oxidation products in industry where high concentrations are used, as well as in domestic exposure, might result in contact sensitization and dermatitis.
Patch testing with fragrances: results of a multicenter study of the European Environmental and Contact Dermatitis Research Group with 48 frequently used constituents of perfumes
The top 25 fragrances commonly found in various products caused few reactions in dermatological patients and these few appeared to be clinically irrelevant, with the possible exeption of Lyral®.

The main difference between this case and others in the literature was the dramatic shift to the left in blood count, imitating leukemia, the more usual cutaneous side-effects of propicillin.
Turpentine‐induced hypersensitivity to peppermint oil
Patch testing revealed hypersensitivity to peppermint oil due to the sensitizing properties of three ingredients: α‐pinene, limonene, and phellandrene, which occur in turpentine oil, a substance used in the patient's laboratory.
