Among the most frequent causes of fragrance contact allergy is terpenes, which are oxidized such as limonene, linalool and in some countries: geraniol. Methylisothiazolinone is still causing considerable problems due to hidden exposures. Acrylates are emerging allergens and 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate has been included in the 2019 update of the baseline series, as many new cases are seen due to long-lasting nail polish based on acrylates and glue (isobornyl acrylate) in insulin pumps. More than 10 new allergens have been described, which need to be considered in diagnosing contact allergy.SUMMARY: Allergic contact dermatitis is a frequent problem, it also constitutes a challenge to diagnose due to many potential contact allergens. The main culprit allergens remain the same, new significant causes are found especially within acrylates.",
