19. Provide supplemental information here

O - Unclassifiable/unassessable Though would not expect generalized skin disorders after topical application, reported itching and restlessness may reflect paresthesia caused by permethrin. Would not expect moist dermatitis at the base of neck directly related to product, however, may be dog scratched at site and caused sign by self-trauma. Further worsening of the wound is not expected either after topical product application and may have numerous other causes. Moreover, wound was pre-exiting. Though time to onset is long (3 days and more) for later reported worsening of wound, considering consistent time to onset for other reported signs and application site involvement, a product connection is unassessable.
