||Fragrance contact allergic patients: Strategies for use of cosmetic products and perceived impact on life situation
||Dec. 2009, Vol.61, No.6, p.320-324. 15 ref.
||The objective of this survey was to investigate whether persons with diagnosed fragrance contact allergy continued to use scented products, how they identified tolerated products, and whether fragrance allergy affected their daily living. Persons diagnosed with fragrance contact allergy in a 20-month period were sent a postal questionnaire, to which 117 (79.6%) replied. Close to half reported having found scented products they could tolerate; roughly one third had not attempted to find scented products while roughly one fifth had tried but could not find any. Other findings are discussed.
