||Acute and chronic dermatoses of exposed parts of the body, and in particular, of the face, often pose diagnostic problems. A certain number of them are caused by substances that are first released in air and then settle on the exposed skin causing airborne contact dermatitis. These skin reactions can be classified as airborne allergic and irritant contact dermatitis, phototoxic reactions, photoallergic reactions, contact urticaria and acne. The harmful agents can occur in both professional and nonprofessional contexts, the first being more frequent. The most common sites for contact dermatitis caused by an airborne agent are the parts of the body that are exposed to the air, but can also occur on those parts not exposed. Irritant airborne reactions are more common than allergic, although they are more difficult to demonstrate. In occupational dermatology the recognition of the responsible agent deserves special attention, since in most cases it allows effective preventive or protective measures.
