Positive reaction to allergy test
A small area of swelling with surrounding redness is typical of a positive patch skin test for allergy.
To control your dermatitis, it's important to find the precise cause. At Mayo Clinic, your doctors take the time to listen to you and conduct the tests needed to make an accurate diagnosis. The results of your allergy testing are available quickly so you can discuss them with your doctor. Evaluation and treatment that might take months elsewhere can typically be done in only a matter of days at Mayo Clinic.
At Mayo Clinic you may have access to new treatment options, as Mayo's clinician-researchers study new testing and treatment options for people with dermatitis.
