      It seems a rather benign mixture of ingredients but responses would be individual.

      The active ingredient is Nicotinamide (= Niacinamide) which is very useful.
      I use it along with other ingredients.
      Do you happen to know what the percentage is in your product?
      Up to 4% should not be irritating.
      I use 4%.

      I can't see the percentage listed in the information leaflet, but I wondered if your dermatologist might have known?
      Previous Numerous IPL.
      Supplements: High dose Niacinamide, Vit K2, low dose Vit A. Moderate Dose Vit C, Iodine, Taurine, Magnesium. Mod- dose B's. Low dose zinc. Testing Quercetin.

      Skin Care: No Cleanser, ZZ cream mixed with Niacinamide gel 4% and LMW HA 2%, ethyl ascorbate 2%.

      Treating for gut dysbiosis.(This is helping).
      Previous GAPS diet. Have now introduced lots of fibre.
      Fermented Foods. Intermittent fasting -16-18 hours.
      Oral Colostrum. Helps reduce food reactions.

          The skin on your hands is different and disease free. Testing there won't provide any information as to how your facial skin may react.

          Not sure what services are available to the public in the UK, but here, you can have a compounding pharmacist create a skin topical for you, no script necessary.
          Some will make up a few trial samples with different ingredient combinations, for a small fee.
          Not all compounding pharmacists are created equal, however, just like doctors and you have to find one who has a thorough understanding of biology/skin and is willing to engage in sensible discussions in order to create something tailored to your individual needs.

            Usually the inside wrist is where you test for an allergic reaction. "Rashes on the wrist can occur as a result of infection, genetic factors, or contact with something that causes irritation or an allergic reaction." Medical News Today

            Of course, there are medical tests for allergies: IgE Skin Tests, Challenge Tests, Blood Tests, according to the AAAAI.

              Unfortunately reactions to topicals, drugs or foods, rarely have anything to do with allergies in rosacea.
              Rosacea skin is dysfunctional.
              Wrist skin is not.
              Thus reactions can be vastly different.

                Never thought of it that way, but you may be correct due to rosacea sensitive skin. Nevertheless, if one is allergic to something, it should show up on the wrist as red and irritating.
