UT Southwestern Medical Center offers some of the most advanced therapies available for the treatment of skin allergies and provides two specialty clinical practices for patients.

Occupational Skin Disease and Skin Allergy

UT Southwestern offers a comprehensive clinical practice for the diagnosis and treatment of skin diseases related to work and work environments.

Our physicians have experience and expertise with allergic and/or toxic reactions caused by substances, such as nickel, latex, cosmetics, medications, and industrial chemicals. We also treat eczema and other allergy-related skin conditions.

The practice is stocked with more than 400 chemicals available for skin allergy testing in patients suspected of having a skin disorder related to occupational exposure. Trained and experienced personnel conduct individual analysis as well as industrial detective work to identify offending agents.


For the many patients in the southern United States where sun-sensitivity problems are relatively common, UT Southwestern's Photosensitivity/Phototesting practice focuses on diagnosing and treating sun-induced skin disorders. Skin tests may be performed to identify the specific agent (sometimes a chemical found in medications or cosmetics) that underlies the sun-sensitivity disorder.
