Some patients with relapsing foot eczema and a shoe leather allergy, who fail to show positive results with standard series and shoe wear screening tray patch testing, do not respond to the use of hypoallergenic shoe leather. We assume that relevant allergens are present in hypoallergenic shoe leather. We described an experiment to demonstrate the presence of these allergens. Alcoholic extracts were made of green, black and undyed hypoallergenic shoe leather, and the extracts were fractioned by… Expand
Efficacy of new barrier socks in the treatment of foot allergic contact dermatitis.
TLDR
Textile engineering has recently developed socks made of a technological fabric Microair ® barrier, a three-layer fabric designed to provide a physical barrier to allergens and irritants as well as high perspirability, and the efficiency of these devices in a selected group of patients affected by ACD to footwear allergens was studied.
