Spectacle frame dermatitis

Aktuelle Dermatologie 11(4): 119-123

Spectacle frame dermatitis

Patch test with spectacle frame materials in seven individuals suffereing from recurrent dermatitis of the outer parts of the nose and behind the ears failed to reveal any responsible allergenic compound. Examination of further antioxidants, hardeners, plasticisers, dyes and other components displayed no direct connexion with the observed lesions. Hypothetically, a newly formed compound seems to be responsible which develops by combination of skin sweat or fat and some of the frame material constituents.
