Plastic Dish Nasal Dermatitis
General information on Plastic Dish Nasal Dermatitis
Plastic dish nasal dermatitis is a type of depigmentation. This depigmentation occurs in the skin of the nose and the lips. The cause of plastic dish nasal dermatitis is dogs eating out of plastic and rubber dog bowls that have the chemical pbenzylhydroquinone within them. This chemical in the plastic and rubber bowls is absorbed into the skin of the lips and nose while the dog is eating and prohibits melanin from being manufactured in the skin. This can cause the skin of the lips and nose to become irritated and inflamed.
