Abstract

The recent rise in the incidence of allergic diseases, including allergic dermatoses, requires a comprehensive approach to solving a number of problems associated with this disease. Analyzing the case reports of 62 children with allergic dermatoses has indicated that this is a particular contingent of children, which needs a more careful approach to different preventive measures, to interpreting tuberculin reactions and hence to substantiating the use chemotherapeutical prevention. A graded skin tuberculin test and an immunological study should be performed in critical cases.
