patch testing on back

Patch Testing for Skin Allergies

patch test consists of specific allergens that are applied to small adhesive patches which are then placed on the skin (usually the back). We perform a full line of skin patch testing which enables us to screen our patients for common skin allergies.  Available patch tests include:

  • North American Series
  • Shoe Series*
  • Hairdresser Series*
  • Oil & Coolant Series*
  • Cosmetic Series*
  • Corticosteriod Series*

*Each of these series is in addition to the standard North American Series which contains 50 common allergens.
