Patch testing in children: a study of 562 schoolchildren

Abstract: 562 schoolchildren from Oporto were patch tested with the standard series of the Portuguese Contact Dermatitis Group (GPEDC). 13.3% of the children had positive reactions, the most common being to neomycin, thimerosal, para-tertiary-butylphenol-formaldehyde (PTBPF) resin and fragrance-mix. Thus contact allergy in children seems not to be as unusual as previously thought.

“…While some authors (Weston et al, 1986;Barros et al, 1991;Stables et al, 1996) detected similar prevalence in both boys and girls, other (Dotterund & Falk, 1995;Wantke et al, 1996;Goossens & Morren, 2006) reported a higher prevalence in girls. This is especially the case for nickel (Brasch & Geier, 1997;Wöhrl et al, 2003) and after the age of 12 (Rademaker & Forsyth, 1989;Rudzki & Rebandel, 1996;Katsarou et al, 1996;Goossens & Morren, 2006).…”

“…Many suggest that there is no difference (Barros et al, 1991;Bruckner et al, 2000;Weston et al, 1986). Other researchers report that the disease is more prevalent in females (Clayton et al, 2006).…”
