Atopic dermatitis (AD) coexisting with allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) is not uncommon. There has been lot of controversies regarding this concept as the prevalence of ACD in AD is similar to that seen in nonatopics. There is increased susceptibility to ACD in AD as AD modulates the exposure to allergens. There is an impaired barrier function that predisposes to the development of ACD in AD. Patch testing is a standard test for detecting allergens in AD.
