Article first published online: 30 NOV 2012 | DOI: 10.1111/bjd.12065

What’s already known about this topic?

  •  To date no studies have evaluated incidence rates and persistence of contact allergy and allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) in an unselected population from adolescence to adulthood.

What does this study add?

  •  This is the first prospective, population-based investigation of both contact allergy and ACD developing from adolescence to adulthood.
  •  High incidence rates of contact allergy and ACD were found in young adults 15 years after leaving primary school.
  •  Nickel was still the most common contact allergen, and new sensitizations occurred despite the European Union nickel regulation. Fragrance mix I was a poor marker for history of eczematous skin reaction to perfumed products.
