On-Line Databases include:

  • Contact Allergen Management Program - ACDS CAMP
    The CAMP system is provided as a service to the American Contact Dermatitis Society (ACDS) members.
    The system is designed to help patients with allergic contact dermatitis find personal care products that are free of the ingredients that are causing their allergic reactions. Each list generated is personalized for the patient. The list is not exhaustive, but is an excellent starting point for patients to find products that will relieve their allergic reactions. For more informatoin on ACDS CAMP, click here.
