Advice to avoid disease.

HAIRDRESSERS in Stockton are being urged to join the fight against the spread of dermatitis.

Environmental health officers are issuing information packs containing advice on how to avoid the skin disease to all salons in the borough.

The packs, put together by Stockton Council, include official guidelines from the Hairdressing and Beauty Industry Authority.

Hairdressers and barbers are identified as having the highest incidence of the disease, an inflammatory condition of the skin which can develop as a result of contact with shampoo, colourants and bleaching agents. Typical signs include dryness, itching, redness, swelling, blistering and bleeding.
