Summary of "Hydrocolloid blister plaster decreases allergic contact dermatitis to Freestyle libre and isobornyl acrylate."

Our patient, a 12 year-old boy, known with diabetes mellitus type 1 since 6 years, started usage of the Flash Glucose Monitoring system (iscCGM; Freestyle Libre, Abbott) in June 2016 (Figure 1a). In November 2016 he complained the first time about itch underneath his glucose sensor, which progressively worsened, so that after some days the sensor had to be removed.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A contact dermatitis due to allergic sensitization to various substances. These substances subsequently produce inflammatory reactions in the skin of those who have acquired hypersensitivity to them as a result of prior exposure.

A type of acute or chronic skin reaction in which sensitivity is manifested by reactivity to materials or substances coming in contact with the skin. It may involve allergic or non-allergic mechanisms.

A non-allergic contact dermatitis caused by prolonged exposure to irritants and not explained by delayed hypersensitivity mechanisms.

An allergic contact dermatitis caused by exposure to plants of the genus Toxicodendron (formerly Rhus). These include poison ivy, poison oak, and poison sumac, all plants that contain the substance urushiol, a potent skin sensitizing agent. (From Dorland, 27th ed)
