Skin symptoms caused by arsenic and its compounds

Early symptoms: Herpes, acne-like rash, skin tenderness, skin contact with arsenic dust can cause dermatitis. Skin lesions often occur in wrinkles or wet places, such as mouth, eyelids, armpits, scrotum, waist, groin and fingers (toes)

Late symptoms: follicular papules, herpes, acne-like rash, etc. Mainly feel pain or irritation, which can form intractable ulcer if not treated.

Related symptoms: hypersensitivity, hair loss, papules and herpes

I. Symptoms

Skin contact with arsenic dust can cause dermatitis. Skin lesions mostly occur in wrinkles or wet places, such as mouth, eyelids, armpits, scrotum, waist, groin and fingers (toes). It is manifested as follicular papules, herpes, acne-like rash, etc. Mainly feel pain or irritation, which can form intractable ulcer if not treated.

Long-term exposure to arsenic dust can cause hyperkeratosis of skin, especially in palm and plantar, showing multiple keratinization rash with clear or diffuse edges; It can also be in the face and neck and easily rubbed and wrinkled parts, causing diffuse or grayish brown (black) pigmentation, or with small hypopigmentation spots, and some can show freckle-like performance. A few can cause hair loss, nails can lose luster and flatness, become thin and brittle, and appear white transverse lines (Michaelis line) with a width of L ~ 2 mm.

Long-term inhalation of arsenide dust or gas can cause dry nasopharynx, rhinitis, epistaxis, and a few even nasal septum perforation; Can cause conjunctivitis, laryngitis, bronchitis, etc., can also cause general neurasthenia syndrome.

Peripheral neuritis is characterized by skin hypersensitivity and muscle tenderness.

On the basis of arsenic keratinization, some of them may have carcinoma in situ or re-complicated with visceral tumors, especially lung cancer. This happens after many years of exposure to arsenide.

Second, diagnosis

Arsenic content in blood, nails and hair increased after exposure to arsenide, and its significance remains to be studied. Urine arsenic determination is helpful for the diagnosis of arsenic poisoning.

Arsenic element, arsenic ore, arsenic compound skin contact history, inhalation of arsenic dust or gas, long-term use of arsenic compound drugs, etc. Occurs in wrinkles or wet areas, such as mouth, eyelids, armpits, scrotum, waist, groin and between fingers (toes). It is manifested as follicular papules, herpes, acne-like rash, etc. Sense pain or irritation. You can diagnose it.
