Some people develop patches of dermatitis and the cause is not clear. Metals, skin care products, rubber gloves, footwears, handbags, cleaning agents, perfumes, detergents, shampoos, leather goods contain many chemicals and some of them might be the cause. Contact dermatitis is a skin disease. Occupations such as hair stylists, makeup artists, jewellery makers, furniture makers, construction workers, cleaners, etc put a person in high risk of contact dermatitis. Although these allergens cannot be tested through a IgE blood test, a skin patch test can identify these allergens and help to avoid them.
