Patch Testing and Contact Dermatitis
Allergic contact dermatitis is an itchy rash caused by contacting substances to which the patient is allergic. Many patients cannot pinpoint what is causing their rash. Patch testing is a "needle-free" way to determine what substances are causing the rash.
As a board-certified Dermatopathologist, Dr. Beard reads her own biopsies as well as reading for other Dermatologists. Outside physicians may send skin biopsy specimens for readings or second opinions by calling (859) 288-5004.
Skin Cancer and Cutaneous Surgery
Dr. Beard has extensive training in the evaluation and treatment of all types of skin cancer. Treatments include surgical excision, electrodessication and curretage, cryodestruction, and other medical treatments.
Advanced Dermatology is a tertiary referral center for Patch Testing. Dr. Beard completed a fellowship at the Mayo Clinic in Patch Testing and Contact Dermatitis. We offer complete patch testing with access to the latest resources and information. Dermatologists, Allergists and Primary Care Providers may refer patients for patch testing by using our Referral form.
