Hi Dr,

We managed to get our daughter in with Dr Kriel at the Clinton.

She now says she doubts that our daughter has allergies, when the previous pead did bloods and said to cut all egg and dairy out of her diet. Dr Kriel says that bloods aren' t conclusive to decide if its a true allergy.

My daughter has been using asthma pumps for about 6 months now and Dr Kriel isn' t happy with it.

Dr Kriel basically made us feel that what ever the other pead did was incorrect and that our daughter has been treated for all teh wrong things till now.

I dont nkow what to think or do anymore.

Anyway this isn' t a question really, just wanted you to know that we have managed to get to see Dr Kriel and that hopefully we can get my daughters fevers under control and find the cause of all other things.

Thank you again for your help and advice of late.

Have a wonderful day

Thanks for this information.Fever is not usually a symptom of allergies. Dr Kriel is an excellent paediatric allergist.
