The development of hand eczema was evaluated in an 8-year follow-up study carried out in 51 junior hairdressers. Predisposing factors were investigated. Data were collected by use of a self-administered questionnaire: 74% response. None of the junior hairdressers presented with hand eczema at the start of the survey. After 8 years, however, 51% had developed hand eczema. No significant difference in prevalence of hand eczema was found between practicing and non-practicing hairdressers (58% versus 33%). Development of hand eczema was not related to atopic constitution or nickel sensitivity. Dry skin type was associated with increased risk of developing hand eczema.
