Autoeczematization in Adult
Autoeczematization is thought to result from a lower threshold for developing an eczematous hypersensitivity reaction in patients with preceding or concurrent inflammatory processes of the skin. Memory T-cells are thought to play a role in the cases of id reaction associated with allergic contact dermatitis. In the case of tinea, id reaction can develop after the institution of effective therapy and can be mistaken for an allergic reaction to the medication.
