This clothing dye used in synthetic fibers is one of the most potent sensitizers in clothes. Allergic contact dermatitis is relatively frequent in consumers. Occupational textile dye dermatitis was reported in a ready-to-wear shop. Constant concomitant reactions with Disperse Blue 124 are due to their chemical similarities, as with photograph developers CD1, CD2, CD3, and CD4.

This clothing dye used in synthetic fibers is one of the most potent sensitizers in clothes. It is a textile dye responsible for occupational contact dermatitis in the textile industry. A positive patch test reaction was observed in a painter sensitized to phthalo-cyanine dyes, with no occupational relevance. Constant concomitant reactions with Disperse Blue 106, and even to photographic developers CD1-4, are due to their chemical similarities.
