An allergy patch test is used to determine if you have allergic eczema.

There are several allergy tests that doctors use to pinpoint allergies. If you suffer from skin allergy reactions, your doctor may recommend an allergy patch test. An allergy patch test is used to determine if you have allergic eczema, also called allergic contact dermatitis. If you come into physical contact with a substance you’re allergic to, including chemicals, you may develop an allergic reaction that impacts your skin.

Skin rashes can be painful, irritating and lead to skin infections in some cases. A patch test can be specifically helpful with identifying the triggers which causes the skin rash. Patch testing to specific chemicals, metals and other substances determines if the patient has a delayed hypersensitivity reaction to the substance.

Patch tests don’t use needles. Instead, allergens are applied to patches, which are applied to the skin of the back.

These can include latex, medications, fragrances, preservatives, hair dyes, metals and resins.

Potential reactions are evaluated in the office at 48 hours and 72 hours after application of the test substance.

During this time, you should avoid bathing and activities that cause heavy sweating. The patches are removed when you return to your doctor’s office. Irritated skin at the patch site may indicate an allergy.

What is a Patch Test?

A patch test is a skin test that your allergist uses to find out what you’re allergic to. Patch tests don’t use needles. Instead, allergens are applied to patches, which are applied to the skin of the back.

For this test, your doctor places one or more allergens onto your skin that are identified as allergens, including chemicals. To clearly see the reaction caused by a substance, your allergist may also draw a square around the test site and put hypoallergenic tape onto the skin to hold the patches in places. These can include latex, medications, fragrances, preservatives, hair dyes, metals, and resins.

Potential reactions are evaluated in the office at 48 hours and 72 hours after application of the test substance.

What to Expect From a Patch Test

The patch test is usually administered throughout several appointments. Your allergist will review your patient history during your first appointment, including comprehensive medical history, symptoms, and any suspected allergens. Keeping track of symptoms prior to the appointment is essential. It gives your doctor a better idea of any additional substances that need to be tested beyond the usual list of chemicals and irritants. During this time, you should avoid bathing and activities that cause heavy sweating. The patches are removed when you return to your doctor’s office. Irritated skin at the patch site may indicate an allergy.

When is a Patch Test Ordered?

A patch test is ordered if your skin shows signs of an allergic reaction following contact with a particular substance. Symptoms may include swelling, itching, hives, redness, or a rash. If the patch test is positive, your allergist may recommend ways to avoid the trigger and suggest management techniques such as medications available for symptom control.
