Fragrance allergy - Diagnosis, causes and quality of life

My research contributes with new knowledge to optimize the diagnosis of fragrance allergy. The FM II is now a part of the standard screening for contact allergy throughout Denmark. The studies show that certain cosmetic products pose a particular risk for the development of allergic contact dermatitis to fragrance ingredients.

Furthermore during my PhD thesis a new validated disease-specific QoL instrument is introduced, which can be used to assess QoL among subjects with a fragrance allergy.
