Patch test with preservatives
Sumit Kar, CR Srinivas, C Balachandran, SD Shenoi
Of the 705 patients patch tested between March 88 to March 91, 317 were tested for sensitivity to preservatives with antigens obtained from Chemo technique AB, Sweden. Paraben was the commonest sensitizer (22.4%) followed by Groton B K (8.1%) and Triclosan (6.5%). We stress the need to consider these allergens as source of dermatitis and advocate complete labelling of topical preparations marketed.
