A patch test is a method used to determine whether a specific substance causes allergic inflammation of a patient's skin. Any individual suspected of having allergic contact dermatitis or atopic dermatitis needs patch testing.
It is highly recommended that you perform a patch test before using any product.
- Place a small amount of adhesive/tape on an area of sensitive skin.
- Put a band-aid over the adhesive/tape for the night.
- Remove the band-aid the following day and check for any reaction.
If you see any signs of irritation or you are unsure about your results, please contact a medical professional.
