We provide a patch testing service run by one of our Consultant Dermatologists.
The service requires 3 appointments and is carried out over 5 days. On the first visit one of our nurses will apply the patches. On the second visit the patches will be removed and on the third visit the patient will be seen by the Consultant for an explanation of the results.
Patch testing is not carried out during pregnancy. If you have a patient whom you suspect may have contact dermatitis, please contact the Outpatient Department.
