||A beautician with exposure to a wide variety of cosmetics, including depilatory wax, presented with a 6-month history of hand eczema. Patch testing showed reactions to nickel, colophony, quaternium 15, and a proprietary cream wax containing colophony. Avoidance of wax and of cosmetics containing quaternium 15 resulted in total remission of the eczema.
