Shoe contact dermatitis is a skin inflammation on the foot that occurs when a substance used in the shoe triggers an allergic reaction. Shoe contact dermatitis is caused by an allergic reaction to a substance in shoes. It can also be caused by an ingredient in over-the-counter foot powders. The most common causes of shoe contact dermatitis are dyes, leather, shoe rubber, adhesives, trim, and biocides, which are pesticides used on the rawhides to kill living organisms. The only way to prevent shoe contact dermatitis, if someone has this sensitivity, is to stop wearing shoes that contain substances that cause the reaction.
