1-22458158: The reporter called the registrant on 5/5/10 to report his exposure to fungicide coated seeds (type unknown); the coating contained the active ingredients Thiamethoxam, Metalaxyl-M, Fludioxonil and Azoxystrobin. According to the reporter, he had applied the seed on 4/28/10. On 4/30/10, the reporter developed a welt on his forehead. He speculated that he may have gotten some of the seed coating on his forehead, but also thought the welt might be related to a tight cap he was wearing. By the time of the call, his symptoms had mostly resolved though he had some dry and pruritic skin in that area. The safety profile of the product was discussed, and the reporter was encouraged to seek medical care to determine the cause of his symptoms.
