Granular parakeratosis induced by benzalkonium chloride exposure from laundry rinse aids

Granular parakeratosis induced by benzalkonium chloride exposure from laundry rinse aids Benzalkonium chloride is a quaternary ammonium cationic detergent present in a number of household products, which can act as a major skin irritant. We present the case of six children who developed granular parakeratosis after exposure to benzalkonium chloride in laundry rinse aids, presenting as a brightly erythematous, tender but minimally pruritic, intertriginous eruption followed by superficial desquamation. The eruptions resolved over 3–4 weeks after cessation of exposure. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Australasian Journal of Dermatology Wiley

Abstract

Benzalkonium chloride is a quaternary ammonium cationic detergent present in a number of household products, which can act as a major skin irritant. We present the case of six children who developed granular parakeratosis after exposure to benzalkonium chloride in laundry rinse aids, presenting as a brightly erythematous, tender but minimally pruritic, intertriginous eruption followed by superficial desquamation. The eruptions resolved over 3–4 weeks after cessation of exposure.
