Allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) is a form of contact dermatitis that is the manifestation of an allergic response caused by contact with a substance; the other type being irritant contact dermatitis (ICD). Although less common than ICD, ACD is accepted to be the most prevalent form of immunotoxicity found in humans. By its allergic nature, this form of contact dermatitis is a hypersensitive reaction that is atypical within the population. The mechanisms by which these reactions occur are complex, with many levels of fine control. Their immunology centres on the interaction of immunoregulatory cytokines and discrete subpopulations of T lymphocytes. The symptoms of allergic contact dermatitis are very similar to the ones caused by irritant contact dermatitis, which makes the first even harder to diagnose. The first sign of allergic contact dermatitis is the presence of the rash or skin lesion at the site of exposure. Depending on the type of allergen causing it, the rash can ooze, drain or crust ...
What is nickel allergic contact dermatitis (NACD)?. Nickel allergic contact dermatitis is an immune reaction (type 4 delayed reaction) to solubilized nickel ions that have entered the skin. Individuals with nickel skin sensitisation experience a skin reaction, usually inflammation and itching, when they come in direct and prolonged contact with items releasing a sufficient amount of solubilized nickel.. How does nickel allergic contact dermatitis (NACD) start?. Individuals can become sensitised to nickel through direct and prolonged contact to items such as some types of jewelry, piercings or nickel-coated clothes fastenings (like buckles, zippers and clasps), if these release an amount of solubilised nickel sufficient to cause nickel sensitisation. Once an individual has become nickel-sensitised, direct and prolonged exposure to items releasing significant nickel (but can be less than the amount that caused the initial sensitisation reaction) can cause a skin allergic reaction known as nickel ...

Allergic contact dermatitis is a delayed hypersensitivity reaction (the reaction to the allergen occurs 48-72 hours after exposure). The most common allergens causing allergic contact dermatitis often change with time, as certain chemicals come in or out of use in the manufacture of products that come in contact with the skin. Most recently, common causes of allergic contact dermatitis include nickel, chromates, rubber chemicals, and topical antibiotic ointments and creams. Frequent sensitizers in the general population also include fragrance, formaldehyde, lanolin (wool grease found in ointments and cosmetics), and a host of other common environmental chemicals.. ...

Whenever an athlete presents with an acute vesicular or chronic scaling inflammatory condition of the skin, one must consider contact dermatitis. Often, the activities of these athletes may lead the practitioner to an initial diagnosis of conditions such as friction trauma, infection and pedal hyperhidrosis while treatment of the actual condition, contact dermatitis, is significantly delayed. Contact dermatitis can manifest itself in several ways, including primary irritant contact dermatitis, allergic contact dermatitis and photoallergic contact dermatitis. Irritant contact dermatitis is t

Allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) is a common T cell mediated skin disease. Small reactive organic molecules called haptens induce ACD. Haptens are not recognized by themselves, but need to bond to endogenous proteins in the skin, and processed further into complete antigens. Antigen specific T cells then recognize the resulting antigen. Although the haptens are well known, the chemical reactions of haptens inducing ACD is not well known. Neither are the chemical structures of the complete antigens associated with ACD in humans. This study is composed of three parts. Reactivity study of strong sensitizers like 2,4-dinitrofluorobenzene (DNFB), 1,4-benzoquinone (BQ), 4-t-butyl-1,2-benzoquinone (tBuBQ) and cis-1,2-hexahydrophthalic-anhydride (HHPA) under physiologic conditions with nucleophilic amino acids and peptides by analytical methods (HPLC, LC/MS/MS). The new reaction products were isolated and their structures were determined by NMR and MS. We found that most haptens reacted predominantly ...

Contact Dermatitis refers to an inflammation of the skin resulting from direct contact of a substance with the surface of the skin. Unlike atopic dermatitis*, there is not necessarily a pre-disposition to allergic disease.. Symptoms of Contact Dermatitis include:. * Red rash, bumps or a burn-like rash on the skin. * Itchy, painful or burning skin. * Blisters and draining fluid. There are two types of contact dermatitis:. * Irritant Contact Dermatitis is the most common form and is caused when substances such as solvents or other chemicals irritate the skin. The exposure produces red, often more painful than itchy, patches on the involved skin areas.. * Allergic Contact Dermatitis occurs when a substance triggers an immune response. Nickel, perfumes, dyes, rubber (latex) products, topical medications and cosmetics frequently cause allergic contact dermatitis.. ...
Contact dermatitis is a common inflammatory skin disorder caused by exposure to various antigens and irritants. It is associated with significant morbidity, and it is one of the most common reasons for workers compensation claims for skin disease. Based on the mechanism by which contact allergy develops, several types are recognized, including allergic contact dermatitis, irritant contact dermatitis, contact photo-dermatitis and contact urticaria. The clinical presentation of contact dermatitis, regardless of the mechanism, ranges from localized vesicles and bullae on erythematous skin in acute stages to erythematous lichenified plaques in chronic stages. Diagnosis is suggested by the localization of the eruption and the history of exposure to an offending agent. Treatment includes removal of the offending agent in conjunction with use of anti-inflammatory steroid creams, antihistamines and, in severe cases, oral corticosteroids. (Klaus MV, Wieselthier JS, Am Fam Physician 1993 Sep ...
Several cases have been reported in the literature of adults developing contact allergy to wet wipes ("moist toilet paper") confirmed on patch testing.2,4-7 Interestingly, children have rarely been identified as having dermatitis caused by wet wipes. Only 2 cases of children developing contact dermatitis from wet wipes containing MCI/MI have been reported,8,9 and only 1 reported pediatric case of ACD to wipes containing MI was retrospectively diagnosed after she was found to be allergic to MI released from her freshly painted bedroom.3. Although MI is replacing MCI/MI, no pediatric cases of contact allergy have yet been reported in the United States, where MI (without MCI) has been identified as the allergen. We present 6 cases of ACD in children from the use of wet wipes containing MI as a preservative. The brands were Cottonelle and Huggies wipes. These wipes are commonly found in US retail stores, and an informal survey of stores in our area revealed approximately half of all wet wipes ...

Appropriate diagnosis and management of persistent eczematous conditions such as contact dermatitis are common challenges for the dermatologist when patch testing. In 2008, the prevalence of contact dermatitis in the general U.S. population was variably estimated between 1.5% and 5.4% and reported to be the third most common reason for patients to seek consultation with a dermatologist, accounting for 9.2 million visits in 2004. It also accounts for 95% of all reported occupational skin diseases.. Contact allergen skin testing is a simple and objective scientific method available to physicians to augment the diagnostic process. Often, the patch test response is the crucial piece of information that allows for the early identification of the offending allergen(s) and confirmation of a diagnosis of Allergic Contact Dermatitis (ACD) and/or Irritant Contact Dermatitis (ICD). Once a diagnosis is achieved, the patient can then take appropriate action to avoid exposure to the allergen and, if possible, ...
Contact dermatitis is a physiological reaction that occurs after skin comes in contact with certain substances. Irritants to the skin cause the vast majority of these reactions. The remaining reactions are caused by allergens, which trigger an allergic response.. Adults are most commonly affected by allergic contact dermatitis, but it can affect persons of all ages. ...
ACD is an acquired, allergen-specific, Type IV, immune reaction that develops with repeated exposure to certain high-risk ingredients in cosmetics, the so-called sensitization phase. The disease phase is characterized by recurrent, intensely itchy, inflamed, red rashes in response to exposure to even minimal amounts of the allergen. The disease phase is without alterable factors and only improves with strict allergen avoidance, which can be very challenging.. Example: Poison ivy causes an allergic skin reaction which is characterized by an intensely itchy red rash, blisters, and swelling. The only way to prevent this allergic skin reaction is to avoid poison ivy completely. Avoiding plant allergens is often much easier to do than avoiding certain skin care ingredients, which are found in numerous products.. ...

What is eczema?   Eczema is inflammation of the skin, characterized by redness, swelling, and itching. Dermatitis is the medical term for inflammation of the skin and is often used interchangeably with eczema. In severe cases, the skin may flake, blister, crack, ooze, and bleed. What is atopic dermatitis?   Atopy is the genetic tendency to develop allergic diseases like hayfever and asthma. Atopic dermatitis is the most common type of eczema; it results from the immune system overreacting to allergens, causing inflammation. Emotional distress can also trigger flare-ups in some cases. Atopic dermatitis usually runs in families, and according to EczemaNet, 10 to 20 percent of the world population suffers from atopic dermatitis at some point during childhood, but it normally clears up with age. What is allergic contact dermatitis?   Allergic contact dermatitis results from an allergen or irritant coming in contact with the skin. Nickel and latex are two allergens that commonly cause
First, the dysfunctional skin barrier in AD patients allows for increased penetration of chemicals, which may increase the risk for sensitization and ACD.1 Of note, this barrier defect also results in increased rates of ICD, which further compromises the skin barrier and magnifies this issue.. In addition, the mainstay of therapy in AD patients includes chronic emollients and topical anti-inflammatory therapy for treatment and maintenance, which may result in children with AD becoming sensitized to allergens found in their topical products.1,18 For example, many so-called hypoallergenic pediatric cosmetic products for sale in the United States contain potent contact allergens such as fragrances and preservatives.19 It has been suggested that skin barrier repair medicaments that do not contain any of the common allergens seen in AD may be helpful, although further research is required.14. Clinical studies show that AD patients are as much at risk for ACD as the general population. One study found ...

IVTEAM #Intravenous literature: Lachapelle, J.M. (2014) A comparison of the irritant and allergenic properties of antiseptics. European Journal of Dermatology. February 3rd. [epub ahead of print].. Abstract:. Over recent years, interest in the use of antiseptics has been reinforced as these molecules are not concerned by the problem of bacterial resistance. Whereas the in vitro efficacy of antiseptics has been well-studied, much less is known regarding their irritant and allergenic properties. This review provides an update on the comparative irritant and allergenic properties of commonly-used antiseptics in medicine nowadays. All antiseptics have irritant properties, especially when they are misused. Povidone-iodine has an excellent profile in terms of allergenicity. Allergic contact dermatitis is uncommon but is often misdiagnosed by practitioners, who confuse allergy and irritation. Chlorhexidine has been incriminated in some cases of allergic contact dermatitis; it is considered a relatively ...

Since contact dermatitis relies on an irritant or an allergen to initiate the reaction, it is important for the patient to identify the responsible agent and avoid it. This can be accomplished by having patch tests, one of various methods commonly known as allergy testing.[14] The top three allergens found in patch tests from 2005-06 were: nickel sulfate (19.0%), Myroxylon pereirae (Balsam of Peru, 11.9%), and fragrance mix I (11.5%).[15]. The patient must know where the irritant or allergen is found to be able to avoid it. It is important to also note that chemicals sometimes have several different names, and do not always appear on labels.[16]. The distinction between the various types of contact dermatitis is based on a number of factors. The morphology of the tissues, the histology, and immunologic findings are all used in diagnosis of the form of the condition. However, as suggested previously, there is some confusion in the distinction of the different forms of contact dermatitis.[17] ...
In contrast to previous studies according to which skin barrier disruptions result in increased penetration of irritants with aggravation of inflammatory disease [22], we could not detect any effects of AHAPS-SiO2-NP on the quality or degree of inflammation. Specifically, our results are at variance with previous studies using negatively charged SiO2-NP that had aggravated allergic reactions in the skin and airways including the same dose as used here [4-8]. Among possible explanations of this discrepancy is the fact that AHAPS-SiO2-NP do not penetrate beyond the stratum corneum, the outermost layer of the skin, in normal and irritated skin, including the mice used here. The distribution and levels of penetration of AHAPS-SiO2-NP on the skin of ACD mice have been studied in detail in a previous report of our group [17]. In that study, no pathological changes were recorded in healthy mice following exposure to AHAPS-SiO2-NP [17]. Furthermore, NP had been injected intradermally in the majority of ...
INTRODUÇÃO A pele é o órgão que separa o corpo humano do meio externo. Esta função a expõe a inúmeras agressões físicas, químicas e biológicas que determinam doenças, dentre as quais os eczemas. Os eczemas são dermatites caracterizadas pela presença de: eritema vivo, edema, vesículas e exsudação (eczema agudo); eritema róseo e descamação (eczema subagudo) e liquenificação (eczema crônico). Os eczemas causados por agentes exógenos, sejam eles contatantes ou endotantes, são chamados de eczemas de contato ou dermatites de contato (DC). A DC pode ser causada por irritantes - dermatite de contato irritativa (DCI) - ou por sensibilizantes - dermatite de contato alérgica (DCA). A DCI resulta da exposição a agentes que provocam dano tecidual direto, como ácidos e álcalis. Já a DCA decorre de uma reação imunológica específica, contra o contatante, em pessoas previamente sensibilizadas. A reação imune contra o antígeno, gerada para destruí-lo, provoca o dano ...

Allergic contact dermatitis is a term for a skin reaction resulting from exposure to specific substances that come into contact with skin that is hypersensitive (allergic) to the substance. These substances are called allergens. Some common allergens are nickel, rubber, dyes, poison ivy, poison oak and other related plants. These allergens do not cause a skin reaction in most individuals, but for some, once the skin becomes sensitive or allergic to the substance, any exposure to that specific allergen will produce a rash that may consist of redness, swelling and blisters. This rash may become worse with each exposure to the allergen. The skin reaction results from two phases. In the induction phase, initial exposure to the allergen occurs. The body recognizes the allergen as foreign and the immune system, which is the bodys primary line of defense against infections and other things perceived as foreign to the body, mounts an immune response against the body, itself. During this immune ...

Sleeping bags can provide your eczema child with a comforting, temperature-controlled, soft, and soothing material to wrap up in raw coconut oil eczema that sleep can come easily and rest can be healing and rejuvenating. I hope your children enjoyed their Valentines Day temporary tattoos. The symptoms of allergic contact dermatitis are very similar to the ones caused by irritant contact dermatitis, which makes the first even harder to diagnose. I recommend patients use the castor oil packs consecutively for 3 days in a row, and then take a break for compliance; though regular use everyday would be a great practice as well.
Our physicians routinely evaluate patients with a wide variety of allergic skin disease and use the most current methods for diagnosing and management of these conditions.
As the largest organ of the body, the skin performs multiple critical functions, such as serving as the primary barrier to the external environment. For this reason, the skin is often exposed to potentially hazardous agents, including chemicals, which may contribute to the onset of a spectrum of adverse health effects ranging from localized damage (e.g., irritant contact dermatitis and corrosion) to induction of immune-mediated responses (e.g., allergic contact dermatitis and pulmonary responses), or systemic toxicity (e.g., neurotoxicity and hepatoxicity). Understanding the hazards related to skin contact with chemicals is a critical component of modern occupational safety and health programs.. In 2009, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) published Current Intelligence Bulletin (CIB) 61: A Strategy for Assigning New NIOSH Skin Notations [NIOSH 2009-147]. This document provides the scientific rationale and framework for the assignment of multiple hazard-specific ...
