    Wow that's way different than what i expected. I thought they took a small piece of your skin and sent it to a lab for testing.
    Can you please go over the details and steps taken during that patch test? I'm curious to know how it's done and how it works.

    It's a really simple procedure. Just Google 'skin patch testing' - it's all out there.

    I just wish I'd known about it years ago. Despite numerous visits to so-called 'top' dermatologists not one of them mentioned I might be allergic to substances that came into contact with my skin, and from eating certain foods (systemic contact dermatitis). It was only when I requested a referral to a hospital with a specialist unit that I found out this had been my problem all along.

    Like I said - everyone with a skin problem should have this done. If only to eliminate the possibility of contact dermatitis.

    One of the dermtologists I spoke to said "don't try and do our job for us - we know what we're doing."

    I felt like punching him.

    I went onto to use Mirvaso - as recommended by a dermatologist. I found out that certain foods were seriously aggravating me and I got so frustrated that I began getting irate and verbally confrontational with doctors who didn't want to listen to me.
    I'm recovering from Mirvaso-induced skin damage. Ask me about it if you are too.

    Thank you, i'll definitely keep that in mind, i doubt my issue contact dermatitis but it certainly doesn't hurt to try it out.

    It seems like it's tough for some doctors to acknowledge that perhaps they don't know everything or that they might be wrong, what's so hard about keeping an open mind.
    Honestly, it's hard to find a good dermatologist, i went to 2 different derms and none actually helped me or even tried to go out of their programmed state of mind where they diagnose something by just looking at it "Ah this seems like it is..." or "It's most likely...." and there they go prescribing the usual stuff for whatever they say you have.

    I understand your frustration. I've been prescribed so many topical creams in the past that have caused my skin to burn, had so many unnecessary procedures (IPL, photodynamic therapy etc.) and swallowed so many hardcore pills (e.g. Roaccutane and full spectrum anitbiotics) that I can hardly believe how dumb these dermatologist have been. Their useless "we only have to look at you to see what's wrong" diagnoses beggar belief!

    Of course, I feel pretty dumb myself now. But then, you think you're dealing with experts. Huh!

    Is there any chance you may have become sensitised to a substance of some kind that is getting into your body via a systemic route e.g. food? Since having a patch test I am totally aware of what I can, and cannot, eat and drink.

    Patch testing and biopsy are different. Patch testing just tests for allergies, biopsies examine whether there is actually some skin conidition like seb derm or rosacea.

    I see, doing both should be fine and help me get some more answers. Thank you for pointing that out.
