||Contact allergy to colophony and hand eczema: A follow-up study of patients with previously diagnosed contact allergy to colophony
||Feb. 1996, Vol.34, No.2, p.93-100. 30 ref.
||A follow-up study of 83 individuals in whom contact allergy to colophony had been diagnosed 9-13 years earlier showed that at least 30% had current hand eczema. 72% still showed positive results on patch-testing with colophony, and more than 50% had additional positive reactions to other allergens. 12 subjects reported occupational exposure to wood, paint, lacquers, soaps or soldering flux; 24 reported intense exposure to paper. Factors influencing the prognosis of hand eczema in individuals with contact allergy to colophony include intervention, onset location of dermatitis, patch test results, sex, occupational exposure to colophony and atopy.
