Allergies Patch Testing If you have a recurring rash or breakout of eczema in certain areas and your doctor suspects that it is being caused by a specific allergen your doctor may recommend an allergy patch test. Not to be confused with the skin prick test which is usually performed by an Allergist the skin patch test is used only to diagnose a contact allergy which is an inflammation of the skin cause by direct contact with an irritating substance. The allergic reaction can often be caused by chemicals found in cosmetics or nail polish or by commonly found in jewelry and belt buckles. If you are meeting with your physician to discuss your allergies for the first time sometimes it is helpful to bring any products that are known to provoke a reaction. At Rao Dermatology we test for 64 individual allergens. An absorbent pad is soaked in each allergen and taped onto the skin for 24 to 72 hours. Rao dermatology in the leading dermatologist in NY.

About the allergy patch test Before your patch test do not expose your back to the sun for four weeks. The entire patch test will require three visits with your dermatologist. The first visit during which the test will be applied to the skin will take approximately half an hour. The skin around the patch test will be marked with a felt-tip pen. The marks from the pen can sometimes stain clothing so either wear old clothes or garments on which the ink will not show. The patches are usually left taped to the skin for 48 hours. During this time you must keep your back dry to ensure that the patches remain adhered to the skin so baths showers swimming and unnecessary sweating must be avoided. If the patches fall off the test will have to be repeated. Psoriasis Eczema and Rosacea Eczema psoriasis and rosacea are all very common chronic skin conditions. None are life threatening but if left untreated any of these diseases can have a severe impact on quality of life. It is important to work closely with your physician in order to formulate the best course of treatment not only through prescription medication but also to isolate and eliminate specific triggers for each individual. We can help you develop a treatment plan that fits your life.

Our office provides narrow band ultra violet B UVB therapy which eases discomfort by reducing inflammation and assisting the skin in the healing process. This treatment is extremely popular because not only is it effective it also takes only a few minutes and requires zero downtime. Many of our patients drop by for light treatment during their work day up to three times a week. We are giving best Cosmetic and Medical services NY. Systemic treatments affect the body’s entire system and require an oral or injected medication. This approach is typically used when topical medications have not been effective or on patients who are affected on such large portions of the body that frequent topical doses are not practical. We also offer our patients injected systemic treatments or biologics usually when topical and oral treatments have not proven effective. Biologics are most often prescribed for individuals with severe plaque psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis. Address: Manhattan NY 345 East 37th St Suite 317 New York NY 10016 Phone: 212.949.0393
