Q.

Allergy test

Hello again!
I asked previously about the allergy blood test.
Can the peadiatrician do it?
And could you maybe give an estimate of the cost?
As our medical savings account is finished...
Thank you so much!

Paediatrician

The RAST tests cost about R80 for each individual allergy test eg milk, cat, dog dust, egg, wheat will each cost R80, so costs can mount up.
