Diabetes Devices May Give Kids Contact Dermatitis
Devices that help children control their diabetes and lead fuller lives may also give them contact dermatitis, which calls for mandatory labeling of ingredients for allergy patch testing. A high share of patients showed positive reactions to isobornyl acrylate adhesive (IBOA) and/or their medical devices (insulin pumps or glucose devices). A third of patients showed positive reactions to benzoyl peroxide (BP). Of the 15 patients, seven showed positive patch test reactions to IBOA, and five showed positive reactions to BP. Ten children had positive patch test reactions to materials from glucose sensors and insulin pumps. Three showed positive reactions to adhesive remover wipes. Five reacted to plasters or cream containing lidocaine and prilocaine.
