Allergy Tests

My daughter seems to get infrequent but unexplained rashes - the doctor each time suggests we treat as eczema but I am not convinced on this as the time in which it comes under control seems to change. Would you suggest some type of allergy testing and if so is there any specific one? I have tried to keep a list of what she is eating but that is proving quite difficult. My daughter is 4 years old. Thank you.

Dear Sally,

There are 2 tests: prick test for foods (done by immunology) and patch test for allergens one touches like preservatives in creams (done by dermatology). I think you should start from prick test.
I hope this is helpful.
Kind regards,
