Itching for Comfort?
Contact dermatitis produces redness and itching of the skin.
Patch skin allergy testing can help to differentiate between the following two types of contact dermatitis:
The patch test involves the application of various test substances to the skin under adhesive tape that is then left in place for 48 hours. Another 48 hours later, the skin is examined for any response. This can help the doctor decide which allergens you react to and identify those that could be aggravating your dermatitis. The doctor will then be able to advise how you can avoid the allergens.
