Do you sneeze, itch, or even get a rash sometimes—and you don't know the reason for it? A skin allergy may be the cause.
A PATCH TEST is the only way to precisely and positively determine what you may be allergic to. In patch tests, a medical professional applies small amounts of common allergens to the skin on strips of tape, which are removed after two days. A second reading is sometimes done two days later. A positive allergy test shows up as a small red spot.
These tips can help you recognize certain reactions to some common allergens. Always consult your physician about any ongoing skin condition.
