PMID: 34013230.


Irritant contact dermatitis and Allergic contact dermatitis are two distinct forms of contact dermatitis. Allergic contact dermatitis is a Type 4 (delayed-type) hypersensitivity reaction that occurs during subsequent contact with an allergen to a previously sensitized person. The number of allergens that cause allergic contact dermatitis is increasing day by day. Although it is not the gold standard for the detection of these allergens, skin patch testing is a very helpful method. This study aimed to determine the most common contact allergens in the pediatric age group.
