Patch Testing for Skin Allergies

Do you break out in a rash whenever you touch certain products/plants? Does your skin develop red, itchy patches after cleaning with detergents?

If you suffer from contact allergic dermatitis or other skin conditions that may be related to sensitivity or allergies, it is important to find out which substances are causing your body to react adversely. Skin patch testing is one of the easiest and least invasive ways to identify allergies and determine which chemicals are a problem for your skin.

Unlike prick tests or intradermal skin testing, patch testing is performed completely on the surface of the skin. Instead of needles or injections, we’ll tape a patch with each allergen to your body and observe the skin's reaction after 48 and 72 hour periods to determine how your skin reacts to contact with each possible allergen.

Contact us to schedule a consultation for patch testing for skin allergy.
