AB  - INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVE: Farmers are at high risk of occupational skin
      diseases which may start already during vocational training. This study was aimed
      at identification of risk factors for work-related skin diseases among vocational
      students of agriculture. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study involved 440 students
      (245 males, 195 females aged 17-21 years) in 11 vocational schools which were at 
      least 100 km from each other. The protocol included a physician-managed
      questionnaire and medical examination, skin prick tests, patch tests, total IgE
      and Phadiatop. Logistic regression model was used for the identification of
      relevant risk factors. RESULTS: Work-related dermatoses were diagnosed in 29
      study participants (6.6%, 95%CI: 4.3-8.9%): eczema in 22, urticaria in 14, and
      co-existence of both in 7 students. Significant risk factors for work-related
      eczema were: history of respiratory allergy (OR=10.10; p<0.001), history of
      eczema (itchy rash) provoked by wet work and detergents before entering the
      school (OR=5.85; p<0.001), as well as history of contact dermatitis to metals,
      rubber or cosmetics prior to inscription (OR=2.84; p=0.016), and family history
      of any skin disease (OR=2.99; p=0.013). Significant risk factors for work-related
      urticaria were: history of allergic rhinitis and asthma prior to inscription
      (OR=7.29; p=0.006), positive skin prick tests to work place allergens (OR=4.65;
      p=0.002) and to environmental allergens (OR=3.79; p=0.009), and positive
      Phadiatop test (OR=3.61; p=0.013). CONCLUSIONS: Work-related skin diseases are
      common among vocational students of agriculture. Atopy, past history of asthma,
      allergic rhinitis, and eczema (either atopic, allergic or irritant) are relevant 
      risk factors for work-related eczema and urticaria in young farmers, along with
      family history of any skin disease. Positive skin prick tests seem relevant,
      especially in the case of urticaria. Asking simple, aimed questions during health
      checks while enrolling students into agricultural schools would suffice to
      identify students at risk for work-related eczema and urticaria, giving them the 
      chance for selecting a safer profession, and hopefully avoiding an occupational
      disease in the future.
