AbstractA 80-year-old priest developed itchy, erythematous, scaly and fissured area on the centre of his forehead, palmar aspect of right hand fingers and medial half of left palm. These were suspected to be contact dermatitis due to sandalwood paste he was using on these areas. Patch test with sandalwood paste was positive. All the lesions cleared in 10 days after stopping application of sandalwood paste and topical application of betamethasone valerate cream and recurred in 2 days when the application of paste was restarted.
