   Abstract 

Chlorhexidine is a widely used antiseptic and disinfectant in medical and non-medical environments. Compared to its ubiquitous use, allergic contact dermatitis from chlorhexidine has rarely been reported and so its sensitization rate seems to be low. Chlorhexidine has been used for more than 50 years but it was only in the last two decades, that reports of immediate- type reactions to chlorhexidine were seen. Reactions ranging from localized urticaria to anaphylactic shock and hypersensitivity reactions, including delayed hypersensitivity reactions such as contact dermatitis, fixed drug eruptions, and photosensitivity reactions, began to appear more frequently. However the prevalence of contact urticaria and anaphylaxis due to chlorhexidine remains to be unknown. In this case report we have reported a case of urticaria due to oral use of chlorhexidine. The adverse reaction was confirmed by a skin prick test.

Retraction Notice





It has been brought to our notice that the article "Allergic Urticaria: A Case Report of Rare Skin Allergy with a Common Mouthwash" Indian J Dermatol. 2013 Jan-Feb; 58(1): 85 ( http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23372227) is the repeat of "Chlorhexidine urticaria: A rare occurrence with a common mouthwash" Indian J Dent Res. 2009 Jul-Sep;20(3):377-9. ( http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19884728) with same clinical photographs, published by the same set of authors.

Initially the authors were served with a show cause notice on May 1 2013 .

Till the day of this notification we have not received any reply from the authors. On this background we have no other option but to construe that this publication was a willful, deliberate action of duplicate publication. As such a publication besmirches the image of a journal and sullies the ethical standards of scientific publication.

Based on the report of a fact finding committee as appointed by the editorial board of Indian Journal of Dermatology and in consultation with the journal Ombudsman In the background of this academic dishonesty, based on unanimous decision of the Editorial Board, a complete restriction on the part of the journal on all future articles in which they are assigned/mentioned as an author/ coauthor was imposed and the corresponding author was communicated accordingly.

The article "Allergic Urticaria: A Case Report of Rare Skin Allergy with a Common Mouthwash" Indian J Dermatol. 2013 Jan-Feb; 58(1): 85 is being formally retracted from the online and offline version of the journal.

IJD maintains a strict principle of absolute zero tolerance in matters like these.

The journal unconditionally apologizes to all concerned for this unintended oversight on its part.
