Contact sensitivity to drugs that are systemically administered can occur among health care workers. 1 We report the case of a 28-year-old nurse who developed eczema on the dorsal aspect of the hand (Figure 1A) and the face (Figure 1B) in the workplace. The nurse was working in the hematology department where she usually handled and administered antibiotics such as imipenem, ertapenem, piperacillin, vancomycin, anidulafungin, teicoplanin, and ciprofloxacin. She was moved to a different department where she did not have contact with the suspicious drugs and the dermatitis completely resolved.
