Patch Testing

Patch Testing can be performed to help determine if a chemical you are coming in contact with may be causing your rash.  We apply a series of the 36 most common allergens to your back.  The patches stay attached for 48 hours and are then removed.  When you return to the office we examine your back to determine if you have an allergy to any of the chemicals.  We will educate you on how to avoid contact with these chemicals.
