Propolis is a bee product with antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory properties
and wound-healing activity. Propolis if administrated orally is nontoxic
and rarely induces allergic reactions. Allergic reactions to propolis
occur more often after topical administration. Propolis is also considered
an occupational contact allergen for beekeepers experiencing higher levels
of the exposure; propolis allergy occurs in 0.76-4.3%. of beekeepers.
Propolis sensitization is less likely in healthy individuals, without history of
skin diseases, affecting 0.64-1.3% of the population. On the other hand
in patients with allergic eczema the frequency of propolis allergy may be
as high as 1.2-6.7%.
