  • Background: Propylene glycol (PG) may cause allergic or irritant contact dermatitis. It primarily functions as a vehicle, solvent, or emulsifier in cosmetics and topical medications. Objectives: To characterize the prevalence of positive patch‐test reactions to PG and the epidemiology of affected patients. Methods: Retrospective analysis of cross‐sectional data compiled by the North American Contact Dermatitis Group (NACDG) from 1996 to 2006. Results: Of 23,359 patients, 810 (3.5%) had allergic… CONTINUE READING
