What is it?
Chrysanthemums are popular perennial plants from the Compositae/Asteraceae family that are grown for cut flowers and for
bedding plants.

How can I avoid it?
Avoidance of the chrysanthemum plant and substances containing the plant extract is the only way to avoid allergic contact
dermatitis to this substance. For florists, growers, gardeners, and other who have dermatitis limited to the hands, wearing latex,
or nitrile gloves may be helpful. Sometimes people can develop eyelid or facial dermatitis from the pollen exposure in the air. If this
happens, then one must avoid being around these plants at all. Sensitivity to other members of the Compositae family of plants can
also occur. These plants include daisies, ragweed, dandelion, artichoke, feverfew, cocklebur, and many other common weeds.
