Abstract

Hand eczema (HE) is a frequent skin disease, combining endogenous and exogenous factors. Occupational -or work-related- hand eczema (OHE) is frequently a chronic and relapsing disease, due to irritant and allergenic contacts. Burden of disease is important, since OHE strikes quality of life of the patient, has significant social and economic impact, and may jeopardize his professional future. The management of OHE combines etiological assessment, efficient symptomatic treatment and adaptation of working conditions.
