DefinitionThis section has been translated automatically.
Skin test procedure (epicutaneous test) as a diagnostic method for characterizing patients with aeroallergen-triggered atopic eczema. The epicutaneous test is performed with the allergens in question, which can trigger IgE-mediated reactions ( type I allergens). Positive ATP reactions are particularly frequent in persons with a freely carried eczema pattern.
