Contact allergy to and allergic contact dermatitis from formaldehyde and formaldehyde releasers: A clinical review and update.

Contact Dermatitis 2022 Jul 17;87(1):20-27. Epub 2022 Mar 17.

Department of Dermatology, University Hospital Antwerp (UZA) and Research group Immunology, INFLA-MED Centre of Excellence, University of Antwerp, Antwerp, Belgium.

This review aims to provide a clinically useful update regarding the role of formaldehyde (FA) and its five main releasers (FRs) quaternium-15, diazolidinyl urea, DMDM hydantoin, imidazolidinyl urea, and 2-bromo-2-nitropropane-1,3-diol (bronopol) in contact allergy and allergic contact dermatitis. These ubiquitous preservatives are still often present, and sometimes undeclared, in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, household detergents, and chemical (industrial) products. In Europe, the use of free FA and quaternium-15 in cosmetics is forbidden and contact allergy rates have been found to be stable to decreasing. Read More

Should Paraben Mix Be Removed from The European Baseline Series.

Acta Dermatovenerol Croat 2021 Dec;29(3):171-172

Inês Nunes, MD, Hospital and University Centre of Coimbra, Portugal, Coimbra, Portugal;

Dear Editor: The European Baseline Series (EBS) of contact allergens is used throughout Europe as a screening test to diagnose contact allergy as a proxy for allergy contact dermatitis and other hypersensitivity skin diseases (1). Parabens are alkyl esters of p-hydroxybenzoic acid with antimicrobial effects used as preservatives in cosmetics, foods, and drugs that have been included in the so called "baseline series" (2) for more than 40 years. Parabens, which are considered allergologically safe biocides and are classified as safe by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS) in Europe (2-4), are frequently present in cosmetics (5).

Cellulitis is a clinical diagnosis based on the history of present illness and physical examination and lacks a gold standard for diagnosis. Clinical presentation with acute onset of redness, warmth, swelling, and tenderness and pain is typical. 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

Diagnosis and treatment of the invasive extension of bacteria (cellulitis) from chronic wounds utilising point-of-care fluorescence imaging.

Int Wound J 2021 Oct 5. Epub 2021 Oct 5.

Vascular/Endovascular/Limb Preservation Surgery Service, Madigan Army Medical Center, Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington, USA.

Early diagnosis of wound-related cellulitis is challenging as many classical signs and symptoms of infection (erythema, pain, tenderness, or fever) may be absent. In addition, other conditions (ie, chronic stasis dermatitis) may present with similar clinical findings. Point-of-care fluorescence imaging detects elevated bacterial burden in and around wounds with high sensitivity. Read More

Characterization of dermatological diagnoses among hospitalized patients experiencing homelessness.

Clin Exp Dermatol 2022 Jan 26;47(1):117-120. Epub 2021 Aug 26.

Department of Dermatology, University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine, San Francisco, CA, USA.

While previous studies have characterized the types of dermatological disease among people experiencing homelessness (PEH) in the outpatient setting, dermatological disease among hospitalized PEH has never been evaluated. Therefore, we performed a cross-sectional analysis of hospitalized patients who received dermatology consultations at two San Francisco hospitals between March 2018 and March 2020 and compared the odds of diagnostic categories between PEH and patients with stable housing. In both unadjusted and adjusted analyses, PEH had significantly higher odds of bacterial skin infections [adjusted odds ratio (aOR) = 2. Read More

Art of prevention: Allergic sensitization through damaged skin: Atopic, occupational, and stasis dermatitis.

Int J Womens Dermatol 2020 Dec 19;6(5):381-383. Epub 2020 Aug 19.

University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center/Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, United States.

The prevention of allergic contact dermatitis hinges on maintaining the integrity of the skin barrier and responding appropriately when it is disturbed. Although intact skin is subject to sensitization via highly irritating allergens, such as poison ivy, acutely inflamed and chronically inflamed skin is subject to sensitization to allergens without inherent irritant potential. In the chronically inflamed state of atopic dermatitis, sensitization to proteins, such as food, also carries a risk for systemic contact dermatitis via ingestion of the allergen. Read More
