What is the Contact Allergen Replacement Database (CARD)?
Q: What is the Contact Allergen Replacement Database (CARD)? And can I gain access to it without a physician?
A: CARD and CAMP (Contact Allergen Management Program) are databases that can suggest personal care products free of specified allergens.
It is impossible for patients or physicians to accurately diagnosis allergic contact dermatitis to the specific components of items that touch the skin without patch testing. Therefore, access to these databases is restricted to patients who have undergone patch testing by a dermatologist.
