Infantum cold® (Sedomed İlaç Pazarlama-Konya-Turkey) is an inhalant ointment that helps to relieve nasal congestion due to upper respiratory tract infections. It contains only eucalyptus oil and spruce oil. Although many reports present allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) due to eucalyptus oil and spruce oil separately there are no cases caused by both oil. We present a case of a pediatric patient who developed an ACD secondary to application of Infantum cold®. We believe that ACD due to eucalyptus oil and spruce oil might be more common than currently described in the literature. We encourage others to test with eucalyptus oil and spruce oil if there is clinical indication.

Keywords :

Allergic contact dermatitis; adverse drug reactions; eucalyptus oil; spruce oil.
