Allergic contact dermatitis is increasing in childhood. In children, population-based patch test studies point to different contact sensitizers and reflect the variations in the exposure to certain allergens among different countries. Our aim is to show common contact allergens in a paediatric population in Turkey. Contact dermatitis and identifying the suspected allergen in children are important as sensitization occurring during childhood may cause a susceptibility to the contact dermatitis later in their life.
