Description

The Clinical Handbook of Contact Dermatitis: Diagnosis and Management by Body Region uses a succinct approach to help clinicians manage this multifaceted condition. Organized by body region, the handbook presents the most common allergens and irritants for a given location.

It discusses products containing common allergens and irritants such as topical skin products, fragrances, shampoos, cosmetics, and textiles. The handbook also discusses several unusual presentations and less common allergen-containing products. In addition, it outlines diagnostic procedures and testing methods—including patch testing—as well as treatment considerations.

Dermatologists, family physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, medical students, residents, and podiatrists will find this an essential reference.

Reviews

"I absolutely loved this book and its straightforward, easy-to-understand approach to contact dermatitis …

What is best about the book is that it can serve as a quick reference guide when faced with a patient with a cutaneous eruption in a busy clinic. Moreover, it is quite readable, and concise enough to be read at a single sitting. Each chapter has useful clinical photos and illustrations, as well as a table listing common allergens pertinent to that body region."
