||Development of hand eczema in junior hairdressers - An 8-year follow-up study
||Apr. 1996, Vol.34, No.4, p.243-247. 30 ref.
||The development of hand eczema was evaluated in an eight-year follow-up study carried out in 51 junior hairdressers. Predisposing factors were investigated. Data were collected by means of a self-administered questionnaire to which there was a 74% response. None of the junior hairdressers presented with hand eczema at the start of the survey. After eight years, however, 51% had developed hand eczema. No significant difference in prevalence of hand eczema was found between practising and non-practising hairdressers (58% versus 33%). Development of hand eczema was not related to atopic constitution or nickel sensitivity. Dry skin type was associated with increased risk of developing hand eczema.
