Answer

Answer

Along with irritant and urticarial reactions, grocery store workers are also at risk for phytophotodermatitis. Their risk increases depending on 2 factors: the amount of exposure to fresh produce (especially celery) and the use of tanning salons. Grocery store workers with both risk factors have a prevalence ratio of more than 40.
