Abstract

Approximately 15% of GP consultations in the UK are for a skin condition. In the general population, about 4.5% of people have a contact allergy to nickel and 1–3% to an ingredient in cosmetics. Studies suggest that skin disorders (29%) are the second most common cause of occupational disease after musculoskeletal conditions (57%).
