Food Allergies

Question

I was wondering if Student Health & Wellness does blood intolerance/allergy tests? I have IBS and have self-diagnosed myself with lactose intolerance about a year and a half ago. I exercise daily, take daily probiotics, eat well, nothing greasy or processed and I don't eat fast food usually, but I'm still getting very bloated and nauseous a lot. I think I may have a malabsorption problem with another type of food, but I've tried the "cutting it out of your diet" thing for awhile with LOTS of different foods and nothing really works. The bowel movements are usually under control, but later in the day and sometimes after random meals I get bloated and gassy and an overall feeling of grossness. So if you don't offer the test, do you know of any other places that might?

Question

I have a lot of zits on my pubic area. I believe it was caused from shaving.

It's not itching or burning, but there are a lot of zits so they are just bothering me. Also, I don't think they are ingrown hairs because there is no hair growing out of them. And they won't go away. Do you know what the problem could be?
