Allergies are very common and affect more than 50 million people in the United States. Contact allergies typically produce itching, rashes, welts/swelling or redness due to a particular substance.  Finding the triggers to your allergies is the first step to leading a more comfortable and confident lifestyle. 

Utah Valley Dermatology offers patch skin testing for the 35 most common contact allergens. Multiple allergens are tested at the same time for convenience. If you are allergic to one of the allergens, you will experience redness and swelling at the site of the test within 1-2 days. A follow-up appointment is scheduled to remove the patch 2-3 days after placement, and then an additional appointment is made to assess the skin and discuss treatment options.

Many people are worried that allergy testing is going to be painful but this method of testing is one of the most comfortable skin allergy testing options available on the market today.
