June 2, 2006, Newsletter Issue #18: Skin Allergies After Exposure To Chemicals

Tip of the Week

Contact dermatitis is the name given to the skin allergy occurring after exposure to different chemicals. It is the cause of over 20% of all diseases occurring in an industrial setting without protective clothing. Wearing protective or safety clothing can help reduce the risk of allergies to hazardous chemicals.

Contact dermatitis occurs when the skin becomes inflamed and red with an accompanying rash. Treatment will involve discovery and removal of the allergen, with symptoms clearing up in two weeks.

Contact dermatitis is frequently seen when there is a latex allergy, or allergy to certain chemicals such as formaldehyde or cement dust.
