Allergic contact dermatitis affecting the feet is quite frequent and induced by one or more of a series of allergens present in any constituent of footwear including rubber chemicals, adhesives, genuine leather, dyes, and metals. Direct local sensitization may be triggered by sweating and friction and, in children, by the presence of atopic dermatitis. We report the case of a 5-year-old boy complaining about an allergic contact dermatitis induced by carbamix and mercaptobenzothiazole, constituents of his new flip-flops.
