Q.

Allergy-test...Thanx

Thanx doc for your advise on the RAST test(for coughing and sinus)....I had it done and my boy tested positive to milk, soya, nuts, egg, citris and wheat. I'm sure there would be more, if we had tested for more...His IgE is 270! His CRP is below 10, so that's fine? But his over all white bloodcell score is low, but his Ped feels, this is not to worry....

Would you recommend that I take him to a Ped that spec in allergies? If so, do you know of some one in Pretoria area?
