Extended documentation for hand dermatitis patients: Pilot study on irritant exposures

Irritant exposure may be a contributory cause or the sole cause of (occupational) hand dermatitis. However, the documentation of irritant exposures in clinical practice is not standardized.

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.

Immunocompromised Districts of Skin: A Case Series and a Literature Review

This paper presents different cutaneous conditions which can lead to immunocompromised districts of skin such as scars, radiodermatitis, lymphedema, disturbed innervation or mechanical friction etc and informs dermatologists and non-dermatologists about Ruocco’s concept and its implications.

Friction-Induced Skin Disorders-A Review.

Careful observation and investigation are required to establish the exact role of friction in the development of various dermatoses, as it often occurs together with other external stimuli, such as pressure and occlusion.

Hand Eczema

Frictional Trauma/Mechanic Skin Diseases



Physical friction is under‐recognized as an irritant that can cause or contribute to contact dermatitis

This work has shown that contact dermatitis is an eczematous process in which physical frictional trauma contributes to the induction of a dermatitis process.

Dermatitis caused by physical irritants

Physical irritant contact dermatitis is one of the least well understood dermatosis because of its multiple types, lack of diagnostic test, and the many mechanisms involved in its production.

Occupational dermatitis in shoemakers

In an epidemiological study of occupational dermatitis in 5 different shoe factories, 246 workers were interviewed, examined and patch tested using standard and occupational patch test series, hyperkeratosis of the fingertips, as a reaction to the continuous trauma of leather on the skin, was observed most frequently.

Keratin disorders: from gene to therapy.

Keratin disorders are a classical group of dominant-negative genetic disorders, representing a large healthcare burden, especially within dermatology, and recent advances in RNA interference therapeutics represent a potential therapy route for keratin disorders through selectively silencing the mutant allele.

Clinical Aspects of Irritant Contact Dermatitis

Therapy and prevention require identification of irritants and reduction of skin contact by gloves or technical measures, and sensitization to environmental allergens does exist and is frequently associated with previous atopic dermatitis.
