With state-of-the-art allergy testing equipment, TrueSkin Dermatology specializes in determining what allergens may be causing recurring skin issues, and where you’re likely being exposed. We also offer consultations to patients considering joint replacements, to determine any potential allergic reactions to certain medical implants.
Understanding Allergies & Allergy Testing
For recurrent rashes of the hands, eyelids, face or body, a skin allergy may be to blame. Dr. Harrison is a well-respected expert in allergic and irritant contact dermatitis to sort out and assist patients with some of the toughest of rashes. When skin allergy is suspected, Dr. Harrison tests for multiple allergens based on a patient’s home and work exposures (occupational dermatology). He has over 400 allergens available to use in testing. Other doctors frequently refer their patients with resistant rashes and dermatitis to Dr. Harrison for a thorough review and patch testing for allergy.
Also, patients who plan to undergo knee replacement and joint replacement, may come to Dr. Harrison to test for allergy to nickel, chromium, cobalt, titanium and other metals or glues (acrylics), before their surgery so as to avoid using a metal implant to which they would be allergic.
