Scheuer, Elyse; Warshaw, Erin

doi: 10.2310/6620.2006.05017

Although allergy to sunscreen represents a small proportion (< 1%) of allergic contact dermatitis reactions in North America, it is one of the most common causes of photoallergy. The epidemiology and clinical characteristics of sunscreen allergy are summarized in this review. In addition, a detailed discussion of specific chemical sunscreen allergens is provided.
