BACKGROUND: Several studies have assessed the effect of patient education regarding hand eczema (HE) severity and quality of life. Few studies, however, have evaluated patients' knowledge.

OBJECTIVES: To examine knowledge of skin protection in HE patients following a guided talk and identify variables associated with knowledge.

METHODS: HE patients referred to the outpatient dermatological clinic, Bispebjerg Hospital, between January 2013 and July 2014 were offered a guided talk on HE prevention. HE severity and Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI) were assessed. A questionnaire comprising 10 questions about skin protection was sent 1-2.5 years later.

RESULTS: One hundred-and-twenty patients responded to the questionnaire (response 53.5%). The mean of correct answers was 74.7%. Sixty per cent responded correctly to at least 8 questions. Male sex, older age and education >5 years were associated with low level of knowledge. Educational level of 3-4 years (P=0.045) was associated with higher level of knowledge. No significant impact of previous/current atopic dermatitis, HE severity or previous information on skin protection was found with respect to level of knowledge.

CONCLUSIONS: Females and patients with an educational level of 3-4 years demonstrated the highest level of knowledge, while males, older patients and patients with an educational level >5 years should be brought more into focus in skin protection programmes.
