Committee Meetings

Tuesday 2nd July 2019

Morning Sessions

The BSDS session will feature free communications and a Guest Speaker Lecture from Dr Christopher J Miller, MD (Director of Pennsylvania University) talking on ‘Surgical Pearls in dermatolgic reconstructive surgery.

Dr Miller is also giving a Keynote Lecture in the main plenary session on Tuesday afternoon.

The BSCA offers an exciting 2019 programme with Professor Erin Warshaw giving the Prosser White Oration on ‘New and Emerging Allergens in North America’ and guest lecturer Stephen Kirk giving an update on ‘Cosmetics 2019: What’s Hot, What’s Not’. The BSCA facial series is refreshed based on current patterns of sensitisation. An audit of older nail allergens (such as toluene sulphonamide resin) and newer nail allergens (such as adipic acid and phthalic acid copolymers) suggests that we should be patch testing the copolymers when commercially available.

The epidemic of allergy to (meth)acrylates features both in the oral presentations and the posters. We gain insight into practices by beauticians which are contributing to the epidemic of occupational allergy. Other individuals exposed to (meth)acrylates featuring in the programme are diabetics with continuous glucose monitors and dairy farmers. Dog cosmetics prove to be a hidden source of exposure to isothiazolinones and fragrances. Ethylene diamine allergy has become almost a historical problem following the withdrawal of TriAdcortyl.

The posters provide lots of interest with audits of patch testing to dental materials, a new source of Sofa Dermatitis of which to be aware, dermatitis from aluminium in childhood vaccines, systemic contact dermatitis from tea tree oil, and a systematic review of oral nickel as a trigger for flares in eczema. Something for everyone here and we hope to see as many of you as possible!
