Patch Testing

Dermatology P.C. provides allergy testing to patients who may have a cosmetic response that is triggered by a certain substance. During the test patches of the suspected allergen are placed on the skin and redness or swelling will occur in a small amount at the test spots. Many different suspected allergens are tested at once making the skin testing quick and easy. Testing involves very little or no pain and the itching, swelling or redness is typically gone within a few minutes of the testing taking place. Patch testing requires three visits in a week.

Allergy testing is very important for preventing acne breakouts, rosacea flare ups, swelling and any other responses that may be triggered from certain substances or allergens. Contact Dermatology P.C. today to schedule an allergy test.
