Allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) is a type IV delayed hypersensitivity reaction. During the last decade, there has been a heightened awareness of this disease in the pediatric population. The gold standard for diagnosis is patch testing. The prevalence of positive patch tests in referred children with suspected ACD ranges from 27 to 95.6 %. The most common allergens in children in North America are nickel, neomycin, cobalt, fragrance, Myroxylon pereirae, gold, formaldehyde, lanolin/wool… Expand
Allergic contact dermatitis: Kids are not just little people.
TLDR
A number of epidemiologic studies now reflect upon the significance of positive patch tests in children and its utility in diagnosing ACD. Expand
Pediatric contact dermatitis: what's new.
TLDR
D is a common problem in children and detection through patch testing, avoidance of offending allergens, and prevention of common allergens are the main focus of management of ACD in children. Expand

TLDR
Methods of patch testing and up-to-date data on pediatric ACD are examined, the top allergens are reviewed, and avoidance strategies are discussed. Expand
Pediatric Allergic Contact Dermatitis: Lessons for Better Care.
TLDR
An overview of pediatric ACD, an analysis of relevant current literature on the topic, focused management recommendations, and a discussion of existing knowledge gaps that must be addressed by future research are presented. Expand
Contact Dermatitis in Atopic Dermatitis Children—Past, Present, and Future
TLDR
Patch testing is safe and effective in afflicted children and those with atopic dermatitis (AD) have similar sensitization rates, although they have a higher sensitization to certain allergens, thought to be related to the inflammatory (IL-4) milieu. Expand
Contact Dermatitis in Children
TLDR
In any type of persistent dermatitis, allergic contact dermatitis must be considered as a differential diagnosis and a careful history taking and the localization of the dermatitis may raise the suspicion of an external cause and provide important clues as to which allergen is caused. Expand
“Mint” Condition: Contact Dermatitis in an Adolescent Numismatist
TLDR
The case of a 16‐year‐old boy with chronic dermatitis suspected of being a possible nickel allergy, who was an avid coin collector, highlights the importance of pre‐ and posttest counseling and exposure history. Expand
Evaluation of Skin Patch Test Results with Contact Allergens in Children-19
Background: Contact dermatitis one of the most common skin disease.Allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) is a hypersensitivity reaction that occurs in those having previously been sensitive to allergensExpand
The role of contact dermatitis in patients with atopic dermatitis.
TLDR
Evidence for and against the role of contact allergy in patients with AD is highlighted and clinically relevant management recommendations for the evaluation of CD in the patient with AD are sought. Expand
Pre-Emptive Avoidance Strategy (P.E.A.S.) – addressing allergic contact dermatitis in pediatric populations
TLDR
It is estimated that one third of children suffering from ACD could potentially benefit from a ‘pre-emptive avoidance strategy’ (P.E.A.S.) of the stated top 10 allergens. Expand

Allergic contact dermatitis in children: a review of international studies.
TLDR
The international (non-US) data from the last decade in addition to the US data reported this past year indicate that ACD in children is an increasingly common condition, equally prevalent and relevant to adults. Expand
Pediatric contact dermatitis.
TLDR
Patch testing should be considered not only in children with lesions of a morphology suggestive of ACD, but in any child with dermatitis that is difficult to control, including 1-week-old neonates. Expand
Allergic contact dermatitis in children
TLDR
The documented rates of allergic contact dermatitis in children are on the rise, and may be due to increased chemical exposures in this age group, better recognition by pediatricians and perhaps more widespread use of epicutaneous patch testing. Expand

TLDR
Four children are presented to illustrate the different presentations of nickel allergy confirmed by patch testing and localized, id, and systemic nickel reactions are reviewed, as well as the diagnosis and management of nickel allergic contact dermatitis. Expand

TLDR
Very young children showed a high rate of relevant positive patch test reactions to common haptens, suggesting that allergic contact dermatitis may easily coexist with atopic dermatitis. Expand

TLDR
The major principles behind the diagnosis and management of this disease in the pediatric population are addressed, and useful strategies that may result in improved treatment of this condition are highlighted. Expand
Patch Tests in Children with Suspected Allergic Contact Dermatitis: A Prospective Study and Review of the Literature
TLDR
Sensitivity to contact allergens may begin in infancy and continue to be more common in toddlers and young children, and in recalcitrant atopic dermatitis, especially at the age of 5 years and over, patch tests are indicated. Expand
Contact sensitization in very young children.
TLDR
A high prevalence of contact sensitization was found in preschool children, even younger than 3 years of age, and patch testing should be considered in this age group when persistent dermatitis does not respond to conventional treatment. Expand

TLDR
Nickel and cobalt were more common allergens in children, and colophony, lanolin, and para‐phenylenediamine ranked in the top 10 allergens among children. Expand

TLDR
Allergic contact dermatitis increases with age, and a prevalence of up to 24·5% has been reported, and patch testing infants may be particularly difficult, and false‐positive reactions may occur. Expand
