Positive Wheat And Oat Patch Test

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if these tests are accurate for wheat allergy. My skin prick test was negative and patch test positive. Any thoughts are they accurate.

They may be accurate for true allergies but they will not tell you if you have celiac. The exception would be if the patch tests produced itchy blisters. If they did then a derm should biopsy the skin next to the rash to check for the antibodies that would deem the reaction to be dermatitis herpeformis, or the skin form of celiac. IF the DH tests are postive then you have a celiac diagnosis and no more testing for celiac would be needed.
