Contact Dermatitis-Non-Rubber Adhesives

These are chiefly synthetic resin adhesives which can sensitize, although fish glues generally do not. Glues made from cotton (e.g., cellulose acetate) are not sensitizers, and neither is collodion. Vegetable gums such as karaya, acacia and tagacanth are sensitizers.
