||Skin disease and contact sensitivity in house painters using water-based paints, glues and putties
||Jan. 1995, Vol.32, No.1, p.39-45. 60 ref.
||A dermatological investigation of 202 Swedish construction painters included patch testing with ingredients of water-based paints, glues and putties. 48 painters had a history of eczema, of which 25 had a history of hand eczema. In 25 painters, factors in the work environment were estimated to contribute to the eczema, and in 11 of these their work was concluded to be the main cause of the disease. Allergic reactions to metals, preservatives, polymerizing agents, resins, solvents and film-forming agents are discussed. Findings indicate that construction painters do not face a high risk of skin disease.
