Contact Dermatitis Program

When your skin is irritated, dermatologists at the Contact Dermatitis Program can help you find relief. You will learn which allergens are causing your skin reaction and how to avoid them.

The program features three steps:

  1. At your initial consultation, your dermatologist discusses potential allergens causing your skin soreness, inflammation or redness.
  2. You then undergo patch testing over a series of appointments to determine the exact cause of your contact dermatitis.
  3. At your last appointment, your dermatologist advises what allergens to avoid and what products are safe to use.
