does a patch test check for polyester allergy
Avatar_dr_f_tn
Hello and hope you are doing well.

Yes, a patch test can check an allergic reaction to polyster. The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) recommends the use of the patch test for identification as it is safer and the easiest of the ways to diagnose allergies. With the patch test, small amounts of common allergic triggers are applied on the skin with the help of tape strips. After two days, the strips are removed and checked for reactions. Places where red dots appear are deemed positive confirmation.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
