Derm News: 2007.4(2)

Contact dermatitis to a canine anti-dandruff shampoo

Australasian Journal of Dermatology 48 (1), 62-63.
Marius Rademaker, Scott Barker

A 40-year-old teacher presented after her third episode of acute facial oedema within 4 months. Each episode occurred 1-2 days after visiting her mother's house. Patch testing showed positive reactions to miconazole and econazole nitrate.

The patient denied use of any antifungal creams, but it transpired that her mother's dog was being shampooed weekly with an antifungal shampoo containing miconazole. No further episodes were recorded after discontinuing the antifungal shampoo.
