Eight patients with skin damage due to contact with an amine are described. The material is used in the potash industry under the commercial name of Armine to prevent bosselation. Although it is considered to be a strong base, no deep burns were encountered. The reaction to this material initially resembled a dermatitis; later the wound developed the typical appearance of a burn. In addition to the common conservative treatment, antihistamine drugs were used. When a true allergic reaction was suspected steroids were added to the regimen.
