Liana• •Location: BMI The Blackheath Hospital•Service: Allergy testing
My child has been treated with eczema, rhinitis since she is 1 years old, now she is nearly 5 years. I have taken to the “best doctors” in the world, paid fortune to see what the cause was and years later Dr Gautam was recommended to me. No one never ever has asked to get blood tests done to see if she was allergic but Dr Gautam did. We found out she is allergic for cow milk and egg so we introduced to her soy milk which she is responding brilliantly: no more “eczema”, no more itches, her nose stoped running!
She is still in treatment and I do hope she lives a normal life without all the cortisone creams, double creams and other things.
