Allergy Hives/Rash
stresslock posted:

I started off a year and half ago with a neck itch. Family doctor prescribed creme which helped somewhat but did not in the end. It started to develop to my arms then. I then have acne on my neck and was told to take medicine for it. At the same time I requested for a allergy test. Could the medicine taken have bumped my immune system down? The allergy results came back with the following: "asperigillus, hormodendrum, penicillium, alternaria, birch, house dust mite, cockroach, timothy grass. I have been taking reactine 20mg ever since. Today I visited an allergist referred my family doctor. I was told that I was to be consulted and started to have allergy shots ordered. The testing was done at a different facility than the allergist location. Instead I was told that I had to do a "foods allergy test". Unfortunately that did not happen because I was on antihistamines. At this moment, I am not sure if I should continue with the current allergist who has poor reputation according to the reviews online or ask my family doctor to refer me to someone else. Is the test I did not good enough? Do I really need a "food allergy test" ? I'm really confused and not sure what to do. Please help. Thanks!
