Patch Testing for Out of Towners
If you live far away and have a local dermatologist, another ¬†potential way to get the testing done if you’re are unable to stay for three days is to come to Philadelphia for just one day. ¬†We can ¬†apply the food patch tests to your upper back , and you can follow up with your own dermatologist for their removal two days later and a final reading one or two days after that. ¬†We can coordinate things ahead of time to be sure your dermatologist is willing and to be sure you have the appropriate follow up scheduled. ¬†After your dermatologist reports the results to us, if you have any allergic reactions, we can send you the appropriate food avoidance information.
