Chelsea Skin & Laser may recommend Skin Allergy Patch Testing to determine the cause(s) of issues with your skin. We use a series containing 80 allergens to test for a wide variety of factors. Tiny amounts of potential irritants are applied to skin patches and adhered to the skin. Results take 1 week and require 3 visits to the office: 1 for application and 2 for reading of results.
Allergy Patch Testing can be vital to diagnosing and treating a variety of skin problems.
At this time, skin allergy patch testing has halted due to COVID restrictions.
