Skin-sensitizing chemicals that cause allergic contact dermatitis do so by reacting with self-proteins such that the modified structure becomes antigenic. The reaction chemistry involved is well characterized, but there are exceptions, such as the occasional allergen sodium metabisulfite. To identify

A 2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazine (DNPH) precolumn derivatization high-performance liquid chromatography-ultraviolet detection (HPLC-UV) method was developed to quantify levels of formaldehyde and acetaldehyde in polyethylene glycol (PEG) solutions. Formic acid and acetic acid were quantified by HPLC-UV. Samples of neat and aqueous PEG

Human skin is exposed to a large variety of cosmetic allergens. Most allergic contact dermatitis occurs after exposure to fragrance, preservatives, and hair dyes. Such reactions can often be occult. As a result, a high index of suspicion is needed
