A 50-year-old female developed severe dermatitis on her face during topical therapy with Shiun-ko and Taitsu-ko. The skin lesions almost disappeared in two weeks with oral steroid therapy and did not recur. Patch testing showed positive reactions to Shiun-ko, Taitsu-ko and Lithospermi radix, and beeswax, which were constituents of Shiun-ko and Taitsu-ko. The result suggests that the patient was sensitized with these topical medicaments and developed allergic contact dermatitis.
