Abstract: When interpreting delayed patch test reads for children suspected of having contact dermatitis, we use the Wood’s light to illuminate the highlighter outlines we made at the first read. Our pediatric patients wear single-use ultraviolet protective goggles to shield their retinas, because children have a propensity to attempt to look into the Wood’s lamp.
