Educational Patient Videos

Studies have shown patients retain more information when they are also shown a video. Since patient compliance and commitment is vital to successful patch testing, we invite you to show your patients our “What is Contact Dermatitis?” and “Patch Testing for Patients” videos. These informative videos will provide your patients with an excellent overview of the patch testing process as well as useful tips.

Once a diagnosis has been made, the allergen specific videos are located below on the "Allergen Information" chart.
