||Occupational hand dermatoses of hairdressers in Tainan City
||Oct. 1994, Vol.51, No.10, p.689-692. Illus. 18 ref.
||Hairdressers from nine establishments randomly selected in Tainan City were studied by interview, medical examination and patch testing. Patch test agents included 41 substances with common allergens, shampoo preservatives, hair dyes, and permanent waving and bleaching agents. Eighty-three percent of the 98 hairdressers examined had occupational dermatosis and 32% had scissor-induced scars or wounds. Hairdressers in Tainan City had a high prevalence of dermatosis including traumatic wounds, and allergic and irritant contact dermatitis. The rates of sensitivity to some of the common sensitizing agents were different from previous reports.
