Keywords:Contact dermatitis; egg allergy; Traditional therapy
Contact dermatitis is common in the pediatric population and affects nearly 25% of all children, but it was previously underdiagnosed. It is usually divided into allergic and irritant contact dermatitis. In this case report, we present a 2-month-old infant who presented with egg-associated allergic contact dermatitis, which is complicated by bacterial superinfection. Allergic contact dermatitis can occur commonly in pediatrics due to many causes, one of them being egg; it can be managed by removing the causative agents and treating its complication.
