Does it make sense to have allergy testing for eczema or just save money for treatment?

In brief: Definitely Testing

You should be tested to determine the cause.
Otherwise, you are doomed to repeat the cause over and over and never have relief from trying to treat the rash with topical medications. Better to prevent the rash!
