Silver polish: another source of contact dermatitis reactions to thiourea.

Abstract

A cleaning woman in a restaurant became sensitized to thiourea in a silver polish. The dermatitis persisted for several months and occasionally flared up after exposure to sunlight, even after she no longer used the product. Patch testing and photopatch testing showed that she had both contact and photocontact allergy.
