Abstract

ABSTRACT: Epicutaneous patch testing is the gold standard for obtaining a diagnosis of allergic contact dermatitis. Patients with allergic contact dermatitis who are undergoing patch testing may be taking or using topical, oral, or injectable immunosuppressant medications. Herein, we elucidate guidelines for the use of antihistamines and topical systemic immunosuppressants during the patch test process.
