“Contact dermatitis is an eczematous skin reaction caused by direct and usually repeated exposure to harmful objects or chemicals … It is typically characterized by itching papules ... but may vary from slight hyperkeratosis ... and small fissures to extensive redness, swelling and oozing. A histopathological examination of a biopsy shows an acute inflammation in the epidermis.”
