In a study undertaken to find out the usefulness of 'Desensol' patch test kit to detect contact allergens, in 200 cases revealed 24 cases with negative patch test with all the antigens and 55 cases reacted to even the Vaseline control. -Excluding these 79 cases, the common contact allergens were potassium bichr6ma,te, (40.49%), TMTD(28.92%), PPD(24.79%), epoxy resin (23.14%), colophony (19.0%), nickel sulfate (19.0%), Framycetin (19.0%) and nitrofurazone (19.0%). Desensol patch test kit is lacking in certain antigens while in our country due to varied environmental factors and social customs, a person is exposed to a large number of natural and man-made contact allergens. So usefulness of such a kit like. Desensol is limited.
