The prevalence of allergic and irritative symptoms among gardeners

, : The prevalence of allergic and irritative symptoms among gardeners. Ugeskrift for Laeger 149(1): 44-46

A postal questionnaire investigation was undertaken among members of the Gardeners' Trade Union in Odense to investigate health conditions (eczema, nettle rash, rhinitis and asthma). Approximately 71% of the recipients, corresponding to 1,173 individuals returned the completed questionnaire. The investigation revealed a high incidence of skin problems (eczema and nettle rash) among gardeners, particularly flower gardeners. Recurrent eye and nasal symptoms were common among gardeners but the frequencies of treatment for rhinitis were not found to be greater than anticipated. The frequency of isolated eye symptoms was, however, greater among flower gardeners as compared with the other gardeners. The incidence of asthma was not found to be greater than anticipated and, similarly, no differences as regards type of gardening work involved were observed.
