Skin Allergy Patch Testing
The TROLAB Patch Test consists of a panel of 45 tests for substances known to cause allergic reactions when in contact with the skin. The commonest allergy-causing agents are chemicals, dyes, colorants, nickel, fragrances and glues. Complete patch testing comprises an initial dermatologist consultation as well as 2 follow up visits 48 and 72 hours apart. Results from patch testing are used to formulate an individualised treatment plan for allergic skin reactions.
