Dermatologists and occupational physicians are those who have to deal with airborne allergens and irritants most often, and the awareness of these substances has grown over the years. In this report, skin symptoms of airborne dermatosis, the nature of airborne contactans, and the localization of lesions are presented, along with the differential diagnoses. Recognizing the characteristic nature of these reactions can greatly facilitate the diagnosis.
