We apply patch tests in patients with skin rashes that are chronic and
   
                not specific, to find out whether their skin condition may be caused or
  
                 aggravated by a contact  allergen.
 
                  We often start with your own personal products as well as stock panels.

 
                 Patch tests  are not the same as  allergy prick skin testing which are used to
                 diagnose hay fever allergy (house dust mite, grass pollens and cat dander) which
                 measure antibody effects.

                           Patch testing triggers T cells, a cell in your body and skin.
                   Skin prick tests have very limited value for patients with skin rashes.
