Author: SHAMBADITYA GOSWAMI, KUSHAL NATH MISHRA, NIKITA PAL, KAMAL SAINI, ASHEESH SINGH, M. V. KUMUDHAVALLI, TEJPAL YADAV
Abstract: Hand hygiene is the most primary, but a very necessary practice for maintaining health hygiene. The pandemic attack of COVID-19 is highly contagious that primarily spreads through the hands. Hand washing and hand rubbing protect against not only from SARS-CoV-2 (Virus of COVID-19 disease), but other harmful microbes also. The authors have found by surveying and reviewing various literature that, frequent hand washing with sanitizer or soap and detergents as well cause vandalism of the skin's outermost layer, dryness of skin, rough skin, erythomatous scaly patches, allergic contact dermatitis, destruction of skin proteins, and epidermal keratin denaturation or hand hygiene associated other dermal adverse reactions especially in health care workers (HCW) along with common mass. So, prolonged use of sanitizer, soap or detergent and their adverse dermal reaction may be minimized by the use of alternative herbal ingredients in alcohol-based sanitizer.
Keyword: Hand hygiene, COVID-19, Erythomatous scaly patches, Allergic contact dermatitis, Epidermal keratin denaturation.
