Doctor :  
I would advise her to get an allergy test done
User :   ok
Doctor :  
It is done at all leading hospitals and medical colleges
User :   sure
Doctor :  
that will indicate her allergens
Doctor :  
and then she is treated accordingly
Doctor :  
That would be a permanent cure as well
User :   that means no dermatalogist
Doctor :   Dermatologist for temporary relief

User :   for allergy test which doctor refers
Doctor :  
even the doctor you consult for allergy would provide you a temporary solution
Doctor :  
So go for the allergy test only

if required they will take a Derma opinion
