Twenty-five years of experience in evaluating people with irritant and allergic contact dermatitis has taught me that many of my preconceived notions were false. No patients are more challenging and interesting to investigate or more rewarding to help than those with long-standing histories of undiagnosed contact dermatitis. Furious resolve during investigation coupled with a willingness to be proven wrong and to find the unexpected is most likely to result in a successful outcome for patients with contact dermatitis.
