Abstract

Seven individuals are discussed who developed allergic contact dermatitis following sensitization to the antibacterial agent parachlorometaxylenol (chloroxylenol, PCMX) contained in either medicated Vaseline or in electro cardiogram paste. The hazard of PCMX sensitization is great in that this chemical is present in over 30 'across the counter' products. PCMX sensitive people may cross react to chlorocresol.
