    The dr said the nose would be crusty inside for staph, the thing is, her nose is clear.

    I'm going to google the specific dr's but I think I might need a referral, incase Medicare covers it. I doubt it.

    I was referred by a gp to a pediatric allergist for both my kids. DD had the skin prick test and while didn't show an allergy was agreed she was intolerant to cows milk which she grew out of. DS also referred to same specialist. He didn't test him because I had managed to clear up his eczema by the time we got our appointment. We avoid dairy, soy and tomato. He also gets eczema from washing detergent so I use a sensitive brand (no fragrance) and in warmer weather dress him in cotton and use cotton bed sheets to avoid sweating. Good luck with your quest. Does she have any other symptoms to suggest allergies?

    Hello, it's just a little bit of eczema on her face, so I would like to get it checked out ASAP. I'll be making phone calls today and Monday incase someone is open.
    Thank you

    How did you go? I found with DS the GP just prescribed a steroid cream to clear it up which worked great, but wasn't offered any information on what was causing it. The triggers are different for everyone too. I read lots of information online and went through trial and error to work out his triggers. Hopefully you can clear it up soon

    Thanks for checking in...the earliest I can get in is late next month for an allergy test. I know cortisone clears the ezcema but want to know what triggers it.

    Has she had the eczema pretty much since birth?

    Anything that might be causing her stress - new to child care? Spending more time away from mum? Stress can be a cause of eczema - my DD had it really bad on her back when I went back to work.

    She does have allergies but wasn't exposed to any during that time - it was definitely the stress.

    Hello, not since birth, maybe 3 months so when she was around 5 months old.

    I'm with her all day and night.

Doctor advised to take a blood test and the blood test report shown that it is a cold allergy.
    So, I think you should consult you baby,s doctor shortly.
    Thank you.
    Will a blood test be traumatic for a baby? I'm happy to do that also.

    I thought it was wheat or cows milk but it's not. I tried the foods also but nothing. Very interesting. I'll talk to the dr.

    How old is bub? DD was almost 4 months when we did the blood test and we went to the women's and children's hospital as they're great there and do babies and kids all the time.

    As a PP said though, the bloods aren't 100% accurate and can't test for everything. DDs came back as allergic to wheat and egg, but skin prick tests came back with both of those plus peanuts and tree nuts and we found out about her sesame allergy the hard way (she ate some hummus). So they could be a good idea to tide you over until you can get bub into a paediatric allergist.
