A 29‐year‐old man being treated for itchy lesions on the amputation stump of the thigh became allergic to betamethasone valerate and gentamicin sulfate cream (Rinderon VG®. Closed patch tests with all the ingredients of the cream revealed positive reactions to cetyl alcohol 30% to 5% pet. Gas chromatographic analysis of the cetyl alcohol in the cream base detected stearyl alcohol (C18), myristyl alcohol (C14) and lauryl alcohol (C12) in addition to the main component of cetyl alcohol (C16… 
Allergic contact dermatitis to an expired moisturiser
TLDR
This case is intriguing in that it contrasts the ubiquitous use of over‐the‐counter topical agents with the exceedingly low incidence of contact dermatitis to expired topical products.
Allergic Contact Dermatitis Secondary to Moisturizers
TLDR
Being aware of the allergenic potential of commonly used moisturizers may help healthcare providers when evaluating patients with ACD, and further testing is recommended in a targeted manner when suspecting ACD with negative standard patch testing series or when ACD is refractory to treatment.
Allergic contact dermatitis caused by wet wipes containing steareth‐10: Is stearyl alcohol to blame?
TLDR
This study aims to demonstrate the efforts towards in-situ applicability of EMMARM, which aims to provide real-time information about the antibody-like properties of E.coli-like substances to wheat.
Men's Facial Moisturizers in the Metrosexual Era: Characteristics, Allergens, and Relevance of Men's Products in Modern Dermatology.
TLDR
Men's facial moisturizers commonly contain fragrances, emulsifiers, and glucosides but relatively few allergenic preservatives, which may reflect changes in modern PCP preservation and be important for modern dermatologists to be aware, especially in a new era of male skincare.
Frequency of Allergenic Ingredients in Antifungal Creams
TLDR
A systematic literature review was performed using the ingredient name on MEDLINE (PubMed) database to identify reports of ACD confirmed by patch testing, and awareness of the allergenic potential of commonly used AFCs may help health care providers when evaluating patients with ACD.
Risk evaluation of impurities in topical excipients: The acetol case
TLDR
It is concluded that setting specification limits for impurities within a quality- by-design approach requires a case-by-case evaluation as demonstrated here with acetol.
Skin disorders in amputees.
TLDR
Dermatologic problems are common in prosthetic limb users and allergic contact dermatitis is a significant problem, and all patients with dermatitis on the residual limb should be patch tested.
Clinical Features of Contact Dermatitis
Clinical features of contact dermatitis include the symptoms: pruritus, stinging, smarting, and pain. The typical clinical finding is dermatitis at the site of contact with the offending object.
Skin problems in lower limb amputees: an overview by case reports
TLDR
This study reviews the literature on case reports of lower limb amputees with skin problems on the stump and identifies the main disorders, acroangiodermatitis, allergic contact dermatitis, bullous diseases, epidermal hyperplasia, hyperhidrosis, infections, malignancies and ulcerations.
Safety of Cetylated Fatty Acids as a Novel Food pursuant to Regulation (EU) 2015/2283
TLDR
The Panel concludes that the NF, cetylated fatty acids, is safe at an intake of 1.6 g per day for the intended target population, i.e. adults.

A five-year study of cosmetic reactions.
TLDR
Fragrance, preservatives, p-phenylenediamine, and glyceryl monothioglycolate were the most frequently identified allergic sensitizers, in that order.
The repeated open application test (ROAT)
TLDR
Repeated open application tests (ROATs) were performed with common ingredients of vehicles in 86 patients with contact dermatitis, finding that of the patients with a questionable (?+) patch test result, 44% were positive in ROATs.
Patch testing with silver sulfadiazine cream
TLDR
There is no evidence that silver sulfadiazine has a contact sensitizing potential or that it is contra‐indicated for patients with a history of sulfonamide hypersensitivity, but 2 vehicle components, cetyl alcohol and propylene glycol were positive.
Amputees: skin problems and prostheses.
TLDR
Once lower-extremity amputees become accustomed to wearing an artificial limb, they want to continue using it, and prevention of any disorder that might return such patients to crutches or bed rest is of considerable concern.
