The economic burden of contact dermatitis is extensive due to work hours lost and physician visits. In the workplace, for example, contact dermatitis (irritant and allergic) accounts for 40% of all occupational illnesses (excluding injury) and 25% of time lost from work. Common sensitizers leading to allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) include metals, plants, cosmetics, rubber compounds and medicines.
