Common terms in skincare marketing: Hypoallergenic fragrance

Hypoallergenic fragrance is a term that may actually have some dermatologic relevance. Since the term literally means reduced allergy, not the absence of allergy, it can be used loosely.

Atopic disorders are on the rise and pose a great burden on society. A better understanding of the underlying mechanisms is required for the development of improved or novel therapeutic strategies. Here we aim to highlight recent advances in experimental allergy, with a particular focus on proposed treatment alternatives for airway disorders, atopic dermatitis, and food allergy. Furthermore, we discuss recent work focusing on molecular and cellular mechanisms that might offer candidates for future preventive or therapeutic intervention.Int Arch Allergy Immunol

AbstractIn the last years, pollen-related respiratory allergies have increased worldwide. In the case of Cupressaceae pollen, allergy symptoms appearing during the winter are often confused with generic respiratory diseases such as the common cold, influenza syndrome, among others. The aim of our study was to monitor the atmospheric of Cupressaceae pollen in the city of Porto, investigate its diurnal variation, as well as find the meteorological factors influencing its atmospheric concentration. Airborne pollen sampling was performed using a 7-day Hirst-type volumetric spore trap for 5  years (2013–2017). Cupres...

The objective of this observational single-cohort prospective study was to assess the effect of synbiotic supplementation for 8  weeks in children with atopic dermatitis (AD). The synbiotic product containedLactobacillus casei,Bifidobacterium lactis,Lactobacillus rhamnosus,Lactobacillus plantarum, fructooligosaccharide, galactooligosaccharide, and biotin. Patients were examined at baseline and at 8  weeks. Effectiveness of treatment was assessed with the Scoring Atopic Dermatitis (SCORAD) index. A total of 320 children (mean age 5.1 years, range 0–12 years) were included. The mean (SD) SCORAD inde...

ConclusionsDuring severe anaphylaxis in mastocytosis patients DAO is likely released from heparin ‐sensitive gastrointestinal storage sites. The measured concentrations can degrade histamine, but DAO activity is compromised compared to pregnancy samples. For accurate histamine measurements during anaphylaxis DAO inhibition is essential to inhibit further histamine degradation after blood withd rawal. Determination of DAO antigen levels might be of clinical value to improve the diagnosis of mast cell activation.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

AbstractAllergic contact dermatitis (ACD) to cosmetics is extremely common —probably the most common reason patients present for patch testing. The diagnosis should initially be suspected based on the patient history and the distribution of the dermatitis. Once the diagnosis is suspected, empiric recommendations for low allergenicity products should be implemented until patch testing is performed. The face is exposed to greatest number of cosmetics, and as a result, facial dermatitis is the prototypical presentation of cosmetic contact dermatitis. In particular, the eyelids are frequently involved, with common source...

In this study, we assess challenges and solutions posed by such species to the public health sector in Austria over the next few decades. We did so using an online questionnaire circulated to 131 experts and stakeholders working on human health and biological invasions, supplemented by in-depth interviews with eleven selected experts. Results from the online survey and in-depth interviews largely support and complement each other. Experts and stakeholders suggest that (i) the allergenic Ambrosia artemisiifolia (common ragweed), the photodermatoxic Heracleum mantegazzianum (giant hogweed), and vectors of diseases such as Ae...
