Thanks for the replies. I have gotten the referral changed so that we are seeing an allergist. I had not considered a gastroenterologist but certainly seems to make sense. I'll bug our family doctor about it.
Dd's current symptoms are eczema (moderate to severe in spots) and extreme restlessness at night.
She has had problems with wheezing since birth, but has been fine all summer. She did get pneumonia last spring and was in the hospital for it. We'll see how her lungs are this fall/winter.
We are a fairly atopic family (I have allergies, ds is allergic to pennicillin, my mom has allergies, dh's family have allergies) so she comes by it honestly!
We're in Canada, and it can takes months for the referral to happen, so in the meantime we are continuing with the elimination diet to see if I can narrow down some triggers.
