Abstract

In allergic skin diseases, cutaneous adverse drug reactions, atopic dermatitis, urticaria, and allergic contact dermtitis are included. Although urticaria and allergic contact dermaitis is less common in incidence compared to atopic dermaitis, both have been considered as representative allergic skin diseases of IgE-mediated and cell-mediated immune responses, respectively. The common causes of allergic contact dermatitis and urticaria in children could be different from those in adult. If allergic contact dermaitis were suspected, patch test would be useful for not only diagnosis but also identification of causative antigen(s).
