Patch Testing

Patch testing should be done on a skin site where the dermatitis is not apparent.
They are placed in direct contact with the skin.

Adhesive tape is used to fix them in place, and the test sites are marked.

The patches are left in place for 2days, during which time it is important not to wash the area because if the adhesive tapes peel off the process will have to be repeated. After 2days the patches are removed and an initial reading is taken about one hour later. The reading is taken 2days, 3days and 7days later.
