||Patch test results in hairdressers with contact dermatitis in Greece (1985-1994)
||Nov. 1995, Vol.33, No.5, p.347-348. 12 ref.
||Hairdressers referred to a contact dermatitis clinic were patch tested with the European standard series and with a hairdressers' series. One or more positive reactions to hairdressers' allergens were seen in 50 (47%) of the 106 patients. 32 (30%) were reactive only to non-hairdressers' allergens, and 24 (23%) were negative to all allergens tested. The predominantly young female hairdressers studied had a high frequency of nickel sensitivity compared to other females at the clinic. Of the hairdressers' allergens, the most positive patch test reactions were to p-phenylenediamine and ammonium persulfate.
