Dermatitis. 2008 May-Jun;19(3):154-6 Authors: Ramírez Santos A, Fernández-Redondo V, Pérez Pérez L, Concheiro Cao J, Toribio J We report three new cases of allergic contact dermatitis due to vitamins in cosmetic creams. The first patient was diagnosed with worsening rosacea but had allergic contact dermatitis from alpha-tocopherol in a moisturizing cream. The second and third cases presented as acute eyelid dermatitis due to vitamin K in eyelid lifter creams. Repeated open application testing and patch tests with the actual products and individual components of the creams were useful in establishing the diagnosis.
