BACKGROUND In view of the current epidemic of contact allergy to methylisothiazolinone (MI), it is important to clarify the extent of use of MI and related isothiazolinones in paints currently available for the consumer and worker in Europe. [...] Key MethodMETHODS Wall paints (n = 71) were randomly purchased in retail outlets in five European countries.Expand

TLDR
An increasing incidence of contact allergy to methylisothiazolinone has been seen, caused, in particular, by cosmetic products and paints, and new regulations have been discussed in the EU, which may have influenced this market.

TLDR
In one individual symptoms rapidly disappeared after treatment of the painted walls with inorganic sulfur salt, which leads to inactivation of the allergenic properties of methylchloroisothiazolinone/ methylisothiazolone.

TLDR
The data show that MI holds a potential for eliciting and propably inducing contact allergy in humans, and whether this preservative is safe to use in cosmetics where billions of consumers are exposed needs a care full monitoring.
