||Dec. 1999, Vol.41, No.6, p.348-349. 12 ref.
||The substance p-phenylenediamine (PPD) is a potent contact allergen commonly found in hairdye. Between 1982 and 1998, 26,706 patients with suspected contact dermatitis were patch tested. 667 (2.5%) were positive. The commonest sites of dermatitis were the hands (35%) and the face and neck (27%). Of occupational groups, hairdressers had the highest rate of PPD allergy (19%), the great majority with hand dermatitis, followed by rubber workers (6%).
