ANOTHER WOMAN CLAIMS MAID HAS SKIN ALLERGY, RELUCTANT TO BEAR COST TO SEND HER BACK

Another reader also complained about her maid’s skin allergy and said the agency should have detected it earlier. She is reluctant to bear the cost of sending her maid back. What do you think?

We have encountered the similar situation. Within 3 mths, our maid developed skin rashes on her hand..doctor said its likely eczema and she has the tendency to skin allergies, meaning, its is hereditary.

It is very unhygienic with small baby at home. We can’t ask her to handle baby and cook. And to incur all the costs again for sending her back and paper work for new one. its too much. Howcome this tendency was not detected during initial medical exam – are our GPs or the blood test not capable to detect such skin conditions.
