Mark asks…

Can skin prick testing for food allergies give a false positive result or are they reliable?

My 9 and a half month old daughter had a positive result for cows milk, however, I only gave her a little yogurt once after her eczema appeared. My gut tells me that it wasnt the cows milk product that caused it. Shes currently having soy products. Are the allergy tests pretty reliable?
I should add that she was on cows milk based formula until 6 months of age when her eczema appeared and the rash is only on her legs.

admin answers:

SPT is just as reliable as pretty much all allergy testing. It can be more sensitive than other tests, picking up on more minor allergic reactions that other tests may not see. It also has its share of false positives as well as false negatives.

The only true way to know if your child has a food allergy is to avoid it and challenge. The challenge should not be done unsupervised, or without the proper precautions as anaphylaxis is a possibility even if there is no prior history of it.

Eczema & rashes are pretty big indicators of a food allergy, and they can occur anywhere on the body. Their occurance & location indicates absolutely nothing about which allergy they may have.

I wouldn’t write off a milk allergy as not being there unless you’ve done a sufficient avoidance (complete 100% avoidance – contact included, such as soaps, lotions, etc) for at least minimum of 2 weeks. Then you can have her try milk, but I’d contact your doctor for guidelines on this due to your daughters young age.

If you’re sure its soy, you can take her off soy for a couple weeks (I wouldn’t advise doing this until you’re certain about the milk thing) and see if it helps. If it does, you might be onto something. If it doesn’t help, its probably not soy.

But the SPT is pretty reliable. I’ve been tested tons of times myself, and I think there might have been maybe one or two false positives. I have however had more false negatives with it, but only on foods that I’m already avoiding due to a known allergy.

Sharon asks…

How do I get rid of eczema?

I have it on my hands and it’s like really red and scabby. It’s also really dry and everything. I know it’s eczema, for sure though. Oh, and it does hurt.

Thanks in advance!
But see I’ve had this eczema for like a year now. It used go away in the spring/summer, but now it stays year round. Is that like really bad that it just is getting worse and worse?

admin answers:

The main cause of eczema is overreaction of the immune system. Identifying certain foods, chemicals, etc can be very helpful in battling this disease. I try to avoid soy and sea food which trigger my flare-ups.
After using number of prescription drugs I’ve turned to the natural treatments.
Now I use herbal remedies from serenaskin.com, which aims at the root of the disease – the immune system. This treatment controls my eczema very well.
After about 3 weeks of using ointment and spray my skin cleared up and now I just continue with anti-eczema extract,which controls the immune system. My skin has been clear for months now.
I’m very pleased with the results.

Thomas asks…

Is it possible to have an allergic reaction to 18ct white gold?

I have a patch of dry itchy skin on my finger under an 18ct white gold ring, is it just dry skin caused by the cold weather or is it likely to be an allergic reaction?
I’m confident it is real 18ct white gold as it came from a trusted and established jewelers.
Also, what can I do to prevent it? I don’t want to stop wearing my ring as it was very expensive AND means the world to me (it’s my engagement ring)

admin answers:

The higher the carat number, the softer the gold. It is possible to have an allergic reaction because 18ct gold will have other metals,for example nickel, mixed with it to make it stronger and harder. Try taking your ring off from time to time when washing your hands, when you moisturise your hands, pay particular attention to your ring finger. It maybe the cold, or as one answerer suggested, eczema, but if it worsens, speak to your doctor.

Donald asks…

What causes the sides of the mouth to swell sometimes?

Sometimes when I drink extra coffee or certain foods it seems the side of my mouth swells enough for me to drag my teeth accross it so as to eventually bite my mouth there when it interferes with my chewing. Is this a food allergy or what? I comes and goes. I would describe this as being in the vee of my chewing area on the outside of my mouth.

admin answers:

It could be oral allergy syndrome, where the mouth tissues react to certain foods. I’d suspect this if you have no other symptoms

If you have any chronic acne, digestive problems, coordination problems, headaches, joint pains, blurry vision, concentration problems, gas, reflux, eczema, rashes, etc. (or even symptoms that are similar to ADD)

Then you may want to look into getting tested for food allergies.

Is there anything i can do to help my Eczema i find moisturizer helps but is it a good idea to put moisturizer on open wounds/bleeding skin?

admin answers:

Have u been to a doctor to get a prescription cream?
My son suffers with it also, he puts a lot of moisturiser on his cracked skin, he also had split bleeding knuckles. I have tried a lot of natural therapies such as acupuncture and chinese herbs, these work for a while but then the body gets use to them
i recently took him to a naturopath who was able to tell me he has a zinc deficiency and this can be a cause, so he is taking omega oil every day and he has a new natural cream, i have noticed a difference in only 2 weeks. If you are in australia, i can give you the phone number of the cream company, email me

I am not sexually active. I got eczema on trunk and thighs. I tested for hiv under elesa method which came out to be negative. Is there any risk of hiv or eczema is caused due to some infection.?

admin answers:

Eczema is a skin condition caused by a mixture of genetic and environmental factors. It has nothing to do with HIV or sexual activity.

Joseph asks…

Does my dog have fleas or is it something else?

I’ve given her 2 frontline things this week, but she won’t stop scratching and biting. The packet says it prevents fleas for 48 hours so even if she was picking them up again they should disappear for a while at least, but it hasn’t worked at all. I’m thinking she might have a skin problem, like eczema for dogs maybe?

admin answers:

You are going to overdose your dog. Frontline should only be applied every 30 days at the most. Some areas and dogs every 90 days. You misread the package. It probably said will get rid of fleas within 48 hours.

Part your dogs hair and look at the skin. Do you see any fleas or flea dirt. (looks like small grains of pepper). Look above the tail, and in the warm spots like between the hind legs and armpits. If you find any then it is fleas. If you see dandruff or flaky skin it is dry skin. If you see any sort of redness, or scabbing with or without flakes, it could be mites or allergies. Any of these things will cause scratching
