Berloque Dermatitis is a skin disorder which develops brownish to redish discoloration around or of the neck of the patient. Berloque Dermatitis is basically a skin disease typical to youth, but Berloque Dermatitis may occur to the people at any age. Berloque dermatitis obtains its name from the German word berlock or the French berloque , meaning trinket or charm. It can be defined as a disorder in which a patients develop a brownish to reddish discoloration of the neck and sometimes the arms due to applying perfume or cologne to the skin.

Sometimes the skin first turns red before changing to a brownish color. This condition can persist for years or even be permanent. Berlock dermatitis is a type of photosensitization resulting in deep brown pigmentation on exposure to sunlight after application of bergamot oil and other essential oils in perfume. Allergic contact dermatitis to a plant is not contagious and the blister fluid does not spread the rash. The rash appears between four hours and 10 days after exposure to the plant, depending on individual sensitivity and the amount of contact. Many perfumes and colognes contain oil of bergamot, an extract of the peel of a specific orange grown in the South of France and the Calabria district of Italy. When this oil comes in contact with the skin and the skin is exposed to sunlight, the oil of bergamot causes the skin to discolor. With repeated exposures to sunlight, the discoloration becomes permanent.
