Abstract A short case report is presented of a hairdresser with a history of allergic rhinoconjunctivitis and recent worsening of pre-existing irritant hand dermatitis following skin contact with a permanent-waving solution containing ammonium thiolactate and ammonium thioglycolate. Patch testing with hairdressing chemicals indicated occupational allergic dermatitis caused by thiolactic acid.
