- Dermatitis Patch Test Clinic: Okemos Allergy Center Patch Test Clinic is specifically designed to test for external sources of skin irritants. It helps determine if any play a role in a patient's skin eruption of red, scaly, itchy patches called contact dermatitis. Our allergists use multiple, properly diluted materials to use in testing. Some people develop patches of dermatitis and the cause is not clear. Many different chemicals which occur in metals, cosmetics, creams, leather, rubber, and other material may be responsible. Patch testing may help to identify the exact cause. It can be helpful in many cases. Patch tests are applied either on a Monday or Tuesday and removed 48 hours later for an initial reading. A second/final reading and interpretation is done at 72 hours. Patient should plan on keeping their back dry for the entire week during testing.
