Reich, Hilary C.; Warshaw, Erin M.

Abstract

Formaldehyde‐based resins have been used to create permanent‐press finishes on fabrics since the 1920s. These resins have been shown to be potent sensitizers in some patients, leading to allergic contact dermatitis. This review summarizes the history of formaldehyde textile resin use, the diagnosis and management of allergic contact dermatitis from these resins, and current regulation of formaldehyde resins in textiles.
