Re: What could be wrong?!?!

What type of allergy testing was done? I would recommend an ELISA test. It is a simple blood test, and tests for IgG (delayed response). My daughter has always suffered from HORRIBLE eczema. We had removed dairy, wheat, gluten, citrus, name it. Turns out her worst allergy is to eggs! She does have mild sensitivities to several other things, but the egg allergy was off the charts!

For what it is worth, we had seen a conventional allergist before, and they had run a RAST test, and she came back with NO allergies....I knew that was not right.

We use the US BioTek Laboratories for our blood work. A local allergist drew her blood and sent it off to them, and about 2 weeks later we had her results.

Wow, 2 took us 3 days. I dont know what kind of testing was done, but they didnt ask me what I wanted her tested for. Therefore, she was not tested for wheat or gluten.

Try cutting out gluten. I had absolutely AWFUL eczema and constant diarrhea and it turned out to be Celiac disease (and I suffered until I was 30 before I was diagnosed!).
