Answer

Success in treatment relies heavily on correct identification of the disease early in its course and treatment of any features of underlying atopy. Recurrence is the rule, not the exception; the term "transient" should be dropped as it is inaccurate and confusing and replaced with "recurrent pruritic". The role of sweat antigen or high sweat metal concentrations in patients with refractory and/or severe disease has not be evaluated but should be considered in those patients.
