Fitofotodermatitis de la mano

Esta persona es sensible a las sustancias químicas utilizadas en los perfumes y le brota una erupción cuando el área se expone a la luz (fitofotodermatitis). Entre los perfumes que causan la reacción está la esencia de bergamot, un aceite que también se encuentra en algunas frutas cítricas y plantas silvestres. La reacción produce enrojecimiento en franjas (eritema) y cambios en la pigmentación.
