BackgroundEuropean studies document that occupational contact dermatitis (CD) is common in hairdressers, but studies from North America are lacking. ObjectivesThe objectives of this study were to estimate the prevalence of occupational CD among North American hairdressers/cosmetologists (HD/CS) and to characterize responsible allergens and irritants as well as their sources. MethodsA cross-sectional analysis of patients patch tested by the North American Contact Dermatitis Group between 1994… 
Contact Dermatitis Associated With Hair Care Products: A Retrospective Analysis of the North American Contact Dermatitis Group Data, 2001–2016
TLDR
Of the HCP-positive patients, 18.5% had HCP reactions to allergens not on the NACDG screening series, underscoring the importance of patch testing to expanded series in patients suspected of HCP allergy.
Occupationally Related Contact Dermatitis in North American Food Service Workers Referred for Patch Testing, 1994 to 2010
TLDR
Among FSWs patch tested by the NACDG between 1994 and 2010, the most common allergens were thiuram mix and carba mix, which were the most frequent currently relevant and occupationally related allergens.
Occupationally Related Nickel Reactions: A Retrospective Analysis of the North American Contact Dermatitis Group Data 1998-2016.
TLDR
Occupational nickel allergy is distinct from non occupationally related nickel allergy, and this is a retrospective cross-sectional analysis of patients patch tested by the North American Contact Dermatitis Group from 1998 to 2016.
Contact Dermatitis Associated With Nail Care Products: Retrospective Analysis of North American Contact Dermatitis Group Data, 2001-2016.
TLDR
Almost one-fifth of nail care product-associated allergens would have been missed without additional screening allergens beyond the North American Contact Dermatitis Group series, underscoring the need for testing to a broad array of allergens.
Allergic contact dermatitis pattern in Kuwait: nickel leads the pack. In-depth analysis of nickel allergy based on the results from a large prospective patch test series report
TLDR
Nickel is the single most common sensitizer found in patients, and female sex, young age, occupation with long hours of contact to nickel are high risk factors.
