Zusammenfassung: 
In the course of a prospective cohort study 1,540 hairdressers apprentices have been included and 1,112 re-examined after at the end of the first year of training until spring 1994. The first follow-up assessment revealed moderate to severe (mostly irritant) hand eczema in 25.7%, and slight irritant skin damage in 22.3%. Daily unprotected wet work of several hours duration, but also constitutional variables (mainly: past flexural eczema, high atopy-score) could be identified as important risk factors employing logistic regression analysis. Use of protective gloves for all wet work tasks can significantly reduce the risk of developing (irritant) skin damage.
