Epicutaneous testing – patch testing


In this test, liquid allergens or allerens mixed with white petrolatum are applied for 2 to 3 days on special patches on the skin. In case of contact allergy, a local eczematous reaction is elicited. Procedure of choice for diagnosing contact allergy. 



* important note: patch testing - testing for contact dermatitis


As reading of the patch test has to be done after 3 days, patch testing can only be performed on Monday, Tuesday and Friday. 


Please adjust your appointment. Any other allergy test can be performed every day.


Pleas note:

The FAZ is an appointment clinic and not an acute ambulance.

In case of acute symptoms, please contact specialists or hospital outpatient departments.
