Patch testing is a specialist procedure carried out by dermatology clinicians. It can help your referring doctor find out whether your skin condition is caused by an allergy to substances (these substances are called allergens) which come into contact with your skin, such as products at home, at work or in leisure activities. You can then be advised of the names of any identified allergens in order to help you to avoid them.
