Occupational Contact Dermatitis

  • Richard J. G. Rycroft


Contact dermatitis caused by patients’ work has an unrivalled claim to our attention within the field of contact dermatitis: first, it is simply so common; second, work is such a vital psychological part of most human lives [1,2]; and third, work matters financially to almost all individuals and to absolutely all their countries. Occupational contact dermatitis can therefore destroy the psychosocial and economic stability of patients as well as that of their skin [3]. It also overlaps with investigative, preventive, rehabilitative and medicolegal aspects of occupational medicine that are not immediately familiar to most clinicians. For all these reasons, it is an area of the subject not without its difficulties, but also one with a particular appeal.
