Título Evaluation of skin symptoms among workers at a Swedish paper mill
Información bibliográfica May 1993, Vol.23, No.5, p.721-728. 19 ref.
Resumen Process and office workers at a Swedish paper mill (n=274) and dairy workers (controls, n=45) were investigated with questionnaires regarding skin symptoms. In the second part of the study, subjects reporting skin symptoms and a random sample of subjects without symptoms were examined and investigated with patch testing. Pruritus and skin irritation probably related to exposure to dust were found. The results do not indicate an increased prevalence of contact allergy. In two cases, positive patch test reactions to paper size (rosin) and a slimicide, mercaptobenzothiazole (MBT), were noted.
