The defense mechanisms of the skin are described. Causes of occupational dermatitis are discussed, including: keratin solvents, fat and oil solvents, protein precipitants, reducers, keratin stimulants, sensitizers, photosensitivity, mechanical trauma, heat, cold, sunlight, radiation, bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites.
