Location: BMI The Blackheath Hospital 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.

Questions solved

%{Count} solved patients' doubts in Doctoralia


  • Question about Allergy testing

    My son has trouble with his immune system, he is unwell every two weeks. His blood test are clear and I think that it can be due allergy or asthma. What can I do about it?

    While its true this could be allergy or asthma, there are a number of other causes for being recurrently unwell. There are some immune problems which need further detailed tests and I would suggest a thorough examination by a good doctor; along with a diary to see if there is a particular pattern, and some more tests such as a chest X ray and a Ultrasound scan!

  • Question about Nutritional support

    What is the side effect of using neocate advance on children up to 6 years old

    According to Nutricia, Neocate Advance is nutritionally adequate for children from 1 - 10. Prolonged use is necessary in circumstances where the diet is extremely restricted due to severe allergies. An experienced dietician should be able to ensure that additional vitamin / micronutrient supplements are not needed!

    There are no side effects as such if the milk is well tolerated...
