||Report of two cases: a 21-year-old farmer's son working week-ends on his parents' pig and cattle farm who developed dermatitis on the face and forearms and a 43-year old dairy farmer with eczema of the hands. Both had positive patch tests to colophony. The dairy farmer also showed a positive reaction to penicillin. It was concluded that they had occupational airborne allergic contact dermatitis from the colophony in sawdust in livestock sheds. An allergic contact dermatitis to penicillin was also diagnosed for the dairy farmer.
