Suggest a good paed- speality allergies

I posted a few weeks ago about my now six month old whose face/body tends to get red and blothes then dissappear. Well this is happening more and more. She is on natural treatment for eczema and this continues to happen. You suggested that it is something called flushing and that i should take her to have the skin test/RAST with someone who is an expert in allergies with babies. Well please could you kindly recommend me the name of someone either in Jhb or Pta. I would sincerely appreciate this or if any one else knows of a Paed that is clued up in allergies especially in young babies.

Kind regards
