Photopatch testing of 1155 patients: results of the U.K. multicentre photopatch study group
TLDR
The most common U.K. photoallergens appear to be sunscreen chemicals, and the investigation of choice is photopatch testing (PPT), which is probably underused. Expand
p‐Phenylenediamine sensitization is more prevalent in central and southern European patch test centres than in Scandinavian: results from a multicentre study
TLDR
Because subjects sensitized to PPD are at risk of clinically severe reactions upon hair dyeing, there is a need for ‘current’ prevalence data on PPD sensitization. Expand
The epidemic of methylisothiazolinone contact allergy in Europe: follow‐up on changing exposures
TLDR
Regulatory action has been taken, at least in Europe, aiming at reducing risk of MI sensitization. Expand
Self‐testing for contact sensitization to hair dyes – scientific considerations and clinical concerns of an industry‐led screening programme
TLDR
If the use of a hair dye self‐test to predict contact sensitization becomes widespread, there is severe risk that a tool has been marketed that may cause morbidity in European consumers. Expand
Contact dermatitis caused by C30–38 olefin/isopropyl maleate/MA copolymer in a sunscreen
A 25-year old female presented with a widespread eczematous eruption after using a sunscreen. She had a history of allergy to plasters and fragrance. She was patch tested with the European baselineExpand
FS01.7
Prevalence of contact allergy in an adult Thai population
TLDR
The particularly high frequency of reactions to Ni, which was surprising, was surprising and contributed to the low prevalence of contact allergy in unselected, non‐clinical populations. Expand
Allergic contact dermatitis caused by iodophor‐impregnated surgical incise drape
TLDR
There have been a handful of reported cases of allergic contact dermatitis caused by povidone-iodine in the literature, with reactions appearing within 2 days of exposure. Expand
CD01: An association between tosylamide/formaldehyde resin and formaldehyde contact allergy? Changing trends in allergic contact dermatitis to tosylamide/formaldehyde resin across a 38‐year period
CD01 An association between tosylamide/formaldehyde resin and formaldehyde contact allergy? Changing trends in allergic contact dermatitis to tosylamide/formaldehyde resin across a 38-year periodExpand
FS01.5
Establishment of safe exposure limits for the elicitation of contact allergy
TLDR
It is shown that exposures of only a few minutes are often without consequence in individuals who are already sensitized, except where the exposure is often repeated and/or the individual is highly allergic. Expand
