Well I had a couple of questions about blood and skin food allergy testing...This says you are a dermatologist but it also says you are an obgyn?
Expert:  Dr.M.D.Mazumdar replied 10 days ago.

I am an Obgyn. I will opt out of this question so a dermatologist can answer your questions.

Ok thank you...Do I need to repost my actual questions?
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 9 days ago.

An allergist or an immunologist actually does skin panel testing.

So I would recommend that you be seen by an allergist.

A dermatologist usually is not the right person for skin patch testing.
