Abstract

Other diagnostic techniques for contact allergy are the semi-open and open tests (non-occlusive tests, usually applied on the inner face of the forearm; reading is performed in the same way as for patch testing) and the repeated open application test (the substance is applied twice a day for 7 days on the inner surface of the forearm).
