During patch testing, we apply panels of allergens to your skin, which are left in place for two days. We perform an initial reading when the tapes are removed, and a subsequent reading 1-2 days later.
Allergy patch testing occurs over the course of one week, during which you will have 3 appointments (Monday, Wednesday, Friday). Your first 2 appointments will be quick as patches are placed and removed, and readings taken. Your final appointment on Friday will be longer, as the results of your test will be discussed, as well as treatment and prevention of skin allergies.
