The Skin Care Centre, Department of Dermatology & Skin Science, The University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC, Canada.

The novel picosecond lasers have emerged as a mainstay device in laser tattoo removal alongside Q-switch lasers, considered the gold standard in the field. Here, we present a 45-year-old female who developed a severe reaction to both her treated and untreated tattoos after two picosecond laser treatments and subsequent widespread eczematous eruption. Skin biopsies revealed findings consistent with hypersensitivity to exogenous red pigment. Read More

Autoeczematization: A Strange Id Reaction of the Skin.

Cutis 2021 Sep;108(3):163-166

Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, Newark.

Autoeczematization, or id reaction, is a disseminated eczematous reaction that occurs due to a release of antigen(s) after exposure to a primary stimulus, with the eczema spreading to a site distant from the original one. This seemingly perplexing generalization most commonly is associated with stasis dermatitis or tinea pedis, though it may be caused by a wide variety of other disorders. We postulate that T cells are reactive to keratinocyte antigens that are produced during keratinocyte damage, which induce this autoeczematization. Read More

Allergic Contact Dermatitis and Autoeczematization to Proctosedyl® Cream and Proctomyxin® Cream.

Case Rep Dermatol 2018 Sep-Dec;10(3):238-246. Epub 2018 Oct 24.

Proctosedyl® and Proctomyxin® are two commonly prescribed hemorrhoid therapies. Their topical application to the perianal region may be complicated by a local allergic contact dermatitis and subsequent autoeczematization reaction. We present three cases of an autoeczematization (ID) reaction to varying topical allergens found in Proctosedyl®/Proctomyxin®. Read More

Pediculosis humanus capitus infestations are common and classically present with intense pruritus of the scalp. Although many treatment options are available, lice are becoming more resistant to conventional therapies and severe clinical presentations are bound to become more prevalent. We present a case of treatment-resistant pediculosis capitus resulting in diffuse autoeczematization of the torso and extremities and severe crusting and scaling of the scalp, which we called "crusted lice.

Id-like reaction to BCG therapy for bladder cancer.

Cutis 2013 Mar;91(3):145-6, 151

Big Horn Basin Skin Center, Cody, Wyoming, USA.

Id reaction, also known as autoeczematization, is the development of dermatitis that is distant to an initial site of infection or sensitization. Clinical findings typically include an acute, intensely pruritic maculopapular or papulovesicular eruption that most frequently involves the extremities. Histology typically reveals spongiotic dermatitis that often is vesicular, and eosinophils may be present in the infiltrate. Read More
