    • Abstract:
      The objectives of the article were to determine the prevalence of contact allergy at age 16 in a population-based cohort and its association with contact allergy, and to assess the association between AD at preschool age and contact allergy at age 16, and the association between FLG mutations and contact allergy, self-reported hand eczema and dry skin at 16 years. Contact allergy prevalence was 15.3% among adolescents and higher among girls than boys. Nickel was the most frequent cause of contact allergy (7.5%), followed by fragrance mix (2.1%). Nickel allergy was more common among girls. Many adolescents reported piercing (55.4%) and hair dyeing (50.1%), and girls frequently reported related skin symptoms. Reports of piercing and itchy rash from metal items were associated with increased OR for nickel allergy. Reported itchy rash from use of makeup or personal hygiene products was associated with increased OR for fragrance allergy. AD at preschool age was associated with fragrance allergy, but not with nickel allergy. This association was present among individuals with AD at preschool age with IgE sensitization, but not among individuals with AD at preschool age without. FLG mutations appeared unassociated with contact allergy and hand eczema, but were associated with dry skin at age 16.
