Consort contact dermatitis due to oak moss

Arch Dermatol. 1988 Feb;124(2):261-2.


An allergic contact dermatitis in a woman was found to be due to oak moss in her husband's after-shave lotion. When routine patch testing reveals a positive reaction, the dermatologist should consider exposure to the antigen not only in the patient but also through contact with the patient's consort.
