Contact hypersensitivity to topical corticosteroids
The value of TP as a marker of corticosteroid hypersensitivity is reinforced by this study, but no satisfactory marker was found for the 9·2% of cases not detected by TP.
Screening for corticosteroid contact hypersensitivity
Both tixocortol pivalate and budesonide should be included in the standard series of corticosteroid contact allergy and there may be a case for extending this further.
Allergic contact dermatitis from latex rubber
Patch testing with latex should be considered where contact dermatitis to a latex rubber‐containing product is suspected, e.g. gloves and footwear.

The results suggest that predominant use of non‐fluorinated corticosteroids (hydrocortisone, hydrocort isone‐17‐butyrate and budesonide) results in a higher prevalence of corticosterone contact allergy in comparison with those areas using a greater proportion of fluorinated cortiosteroids.
Neomycin: a review with particular reference to dermatological usage
Neomycin is an aminoglycoside produced by Streptomyces fradiae and was isolated in 1949 and, because it is a mixture, amounts are usually measured in units.
