3 Day Patch Test (Must have Atopic Sensitive Skin)

Study Summary

Alba Science is inviting you to take part in a 3 day patch test for people with Atopic Sensitive Skin (Eczema Prone Skin).

We are looking for people who have suffered from eczema in the past.  Your eczema can not have been active in the last six months.

The patch will be applied to your upper arms on the first 2 visits to the test centre. They will each be worn for 23h (i.e. removed 1h before your next visit to the test centre).

The area of your arm which has had the patch applied will be assessed for skin reactions each day.
