||Between 2001 and 2007, 81 patients with formaldehyde allergy and 18 with an independent allergy to formaldehyde release agents were patch tested at the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health. Of the formaldehyde allergies, 60 were new sensitizations, 25 of which were considered to be occupational. The most common source of occupational sensitization was metalworking fluids followed by protective creams and liquid soaps. Occupational formaldehyde allergy was common and occurred in metalworkers, hairdressers, masseurs and workers using protective creams, detergents, and liquid soaps.
