||Occupational airborne allergic contact dermatitis in a concrete repair worker
||Jan. 2009, Vol.60, No.1, p.50-51. Illus. 6 ref.
||This article describes a case of contact dermatitis in a 31-year-old bricklayer involved in the repair of concrete structures and exposed daily to epoxy systems. Despite the use of personal protective equipment including goggles, a face mask and nitrile gloves, he developed a dermatitis on the forearms, and later an eczema on the face which were diagnosed as a work-related airborne dermatitis. Patch tests resulted in positive reactions to several epoxy systems. The dermatitis ceased within weeks after he stopped working in the construction industry.
