Contact Dermatitis, 05/18/2012
Dalmau G et al. – On the basis of the clinical findings, the positive patch test reactions to Bromo–3–chloro–5,5–dimethylhydantoin (BCDMH), and the negative patch test reactions in controls, the suggested diagnosis was allergic contact dermatitis caused by BCDMH used as a disinfectant in the swimming pool water. Contact allergy should be taken into consideration when patients suffer from swimming pool–associated itchy dermatitis.
