Patch TestingPatch Testing

At Lee’s Summit Dermatology Associates, we provide allergy patch testing. Patch testing is sometimes necessary to help determine if an itchy, scaly red skin rash or dermatitis is due to a contact allergy.

Allergic contact dermatitis is caused by exposure to the environment such as cleaning products, personal hygiene products or make-up, topical medications, clothing, leather and rubber products. These are only a few categories of items that can cause allergic contact dermatitis.

Patch testing may help our patients know what may be causing their rash so that they can avoid those products or substances in the future. Please contact us for more information.
