||Occupational allergic contract dermatitis from cinnamon including one case from airborne exposure
||Feb. 2009, Vol.60, No.2, p.96-99. 24 ref.
||This article reports cases of occupational allergic contact dermatitis and contact allergy from cinnamon based on patient records from two dermatological clinics in Helsinki, Finland. Six patients with delayed contact allergy to cinnamon were identified. Five of the patients showed positive reactions to cinnamal alone and in fragrance mix I in skin tests. Occupational contact allergy to cinnamon is rare but needs to be considered in workers handling food. Cinnamal is likely to be the main allergen in cinnamon.
