Present in natural sunlight, ultraviolet light B (UVB) is an effective treatment for psoriasis, eczema and other chronic skin disorders. We offer Narrow Band UVB treatments for conditions. UVB penetrates the skin and slows the abnormally rapid growth of skin cells associated with conditions such as psoriasis.
Our office offers patch testing for allergic contact dermatitis which can be the underlying cause of a chronic rash. This is different than environmental or food "pin prick" allergy test that most people are familiar with. Patches are applied to the back along with other personal products that may be potential culprits causing dermatitis. Patches contain the North American Contact Dermatitis Society's core allergen list which includes certain substances that can be found in jewelry, skin care products, soaps, cosmetics, fragrances and clothing. Patients will first need to see one of our providers to see if this testing is appropriate for the condition. All testing is first prior authorized through insurance so patients will be aware of any out of pocket expenses.
Additional information about patch testing can be found at the Allergic Contact Dermatitis Society website.
