Skin allergies can be uncomfortable and unsightly. If your skin irritates from an unknown cause, let our dermatologists perform Skin Allergy Patch Testing to determine if an allergy is responsible for your condition, and help you with effective management of the discomfort and distress.
A skin allergy is an immune response to something in the environment when your skin comes in contact with it and considers it harmful. Usually, a substance that becomes an allergen and draws allergic reactions from one person may appear harmless and normal to another person. Therefore, singling out exact causes that irritate immune systems to produce allergic reactions has been quite a challenge. However, some of the risk factors that can trigger skin allergy are detergents and soaps, flowers and fragrances, cosmetic products, chemicals, and metals.
Skin allergies can manifest themselves as rashes, blisters, tiny bumps filled with fluids, redness, itching, and roughness or dryness of the skin.
While most cases of skin allergies are not life-threatening or contagious and often subside on their own or with little medical care, there are specific cases such as chicken-pox that require adequate treatment for the management of their symptoms.
If you’re troubled by an allergic reaction and its symptoms, see our experienced Dermatologists at American Hospital Dubai, who will conduct skin allergy patch testing to determine the underlying cause of skin irritation, and offer personalized treatment options to effectively treat and improve the skin condition.
During skin allergy testing, your skincare Consultant exposes a skin patch to the suspected allergens and monitors for allergic reactions. This is achieved by applying paper tapes containing small amounts of allergens onto the skin. These tapes are removed after a while, and the skin with a red, itchy bump or blister that looks like a mosquito bite confirms an allergy.
