First visit(s) to a doctor - what to do and in what order ?
Posted in the Eczema Forum
#1 Oct 16, 2006
I have very low grade eczema - limited to my fingers and a bit on my arms, all of which can be almost completely invisible with normal 1% OTC cortisone (cortaid, etc.)
However, I am interested in learning more about my condition, and perhaps finding a workable alternative to cortisone (I've tried it all, and found nothing so far)
So I am going to my first doctors visit(s).
I plan on doing the following tests:
1. full body test for yeasts and other parasites, etc.- I want to know if anything is living on or in me that shouldn't be, or should be on or in me and isn't.
2. full allergy test - the whole battery of everything.
So I have the following questions:
a. are there any other tests/visits/consultations that I should have done in addition to those two ?
b. What order should I do these things in ? Will one test provide useful information for the subsequent test(s)
c. anything else I should know ? Any questions to asks or things to look at that doctors either forget or usually pass on ?
