What are the most common causes of dermatitis?
The most commonly reported agents causing dermatitis include:
- rubber chemicals and materials, such as rubber gloves;
- working with wet hands (wet work); and
- shampoos, soaps and cleaners.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) says that solvents, some food (including onions, flour and shellfish), oils and greases, dusts, acids and alkalis, some hair dyes, UV-cured printing inks, adhesives, cement, and even some plants, such as chrysanthemums, can all cause dermatitis.
