Contact dermatitis is common in military personnel with an incidence of 9.6-32%. Occupational contact dermatitis may be due to oils, fuels, and solvents, explosives; munitions and fuses; combat gases; weapons and arms; and paints and detergents. Environmental contact dermatitis may be due to plants or insect bites. Other causes for allergic contact dermatitis include clothing and other accessories, drugs, repellents, and antiperspirants. Intentional damage to the skin for obtaining secondary psychological gains is well known in soldiers.
