GENERALIZED DERMATITIS FROM NAIL POLISH

GENERALIZED DERMATITIS FROM NAIL POLISH Abstract Dermatitis due to nail polish, though sparingly reported in the literature, is not uncommon in the experience of the dermatologist. Recently several reports have been published in The Journal of the American Medical Association. In the main they have concerned the occurrence of an eruption on the face and neck. In the report by Ellis and Kirby-Smith1 1 patient had an involvement of the shoulders and 1 had an eruption on the legs, which was due to the application of nail polish to the stocking to prevent runs. In 2 others the anterior axillary fold and the cubital fossa were affected. In the cases reported by Hollander2 the face and neck were solely affected. In another instance3 the chest and arms were involved. To show that this form of cosmetic can produce an eruption of a more extensive character, I wish to report the following case.

Abstract

Abstract Dermatitis due to nail polish, though sparingly reported in the literature, is not uncommon in the experience of the dermatologist. Recently several reports have been published in The Journal of the American Medical Association. In the main they have concerned the occurrence of an eruption on the face and neck. In the report by Ellis and Kirby-Smith1 1 patient had an involvement of the shoulders and 1 had an eruption on the legs, which was due to the application of nail polish to the stocking to prevent runs. In 2 others the anterior axillary fold and the cubital fossa were affected. In the cases reported by Hollander2 the face and neck were solely affected. In another instance3 the chest and arms were involved. To show that this form of cosmetic can produce an eruption of a more extensive character, I wish to report the following case. REPORT References 1. Ellis, F. A., and Kirby-Smith, H.: Contact Dermatitis Due to Nail Polish , J. A. M. A. 116:45 ( (Jan. 4) ) 1941.Crossref 2. Hollander, L.: Nail Lacquer Dermatitis , J. A. M.
