PLASTIC FOOTWEAR FOR SHOE-SENSITIVE PATIENTS

PLASTIC FOOTWEAR FOR SHOE-SENSITIVE PATIENTS Abstract To the Editor: The patient with hypersensitivity to rubber, chromates, or dyes has always posed a trying problem for us in finding satisfactory footwear. Shoe manufacturers have not been very cooperative in general in providing shoes made of vegetable-tanned leather, without rubber cements and allergenic dyes. With the passing of the local cobbler the shoe-sensitive patients had nowhere to turn. Recently a shoe made of one-piece molded plastic has come to my attention, and this may well be an answer to some of the problems of shoe allergy.These shoes are available for men, women, and children. All are either sandals or perforated shoes, undoubtedly a necessity with an impervious plastic shoe. One shoe-sensitive patient, allergic to mercaptobenzothiazole, has worn these shoes for 2 months with marked improvement in his dermatitis and with no complications.Dermatologists wishing to do some clinical research with this product may wish to communicate with References 1.

Abstract

Abstract To the Editor: The patient with hypersensitivity to rubber, chromates, or dyes has always posed a trying problem for us in finding satisfactory footwear. Shoe manufacturers have not been very cooperative in general in providing shoes made of vegetable-tanned leather, without rubber cements and allergenic dyes. With the passing of the local cobbler the shoe-sensitive patients had nowhere to turn. Recently a shoe made of one-piece molded plastic has come to my attention, and this may well be an answer to some of the problems of shoe allergy.These shoes are available for men, women, and children. All are either sandals or perforated shoes, undoubtedly a necessity with an impervious plastic shoe. One shoe-sensitive patient, allergic to mercaptobenzothiazole, has worn these shoes for 2 months with marked improvement in his dermatitis and with no complications.Dermatologists wishing to do some clinical research with this product may wish to communicate with References 1.
