Your Immunology and Allergy Questions Answered

Allergy and Clinical Immunology is a medical specialty that deals with allergies and immune system problems. Allergies happen when the immune system reacts too strongly to things like pollen or food, causing symptoms like sneezing or rashes. There is no one answer to why some people are more prone to allergies; it’s a combination of genetics and environmental exposure.

An allergist/immunologist is a doctor who specializes in treating allergies and immune system issues. They help with various problems, including seasonal allergies, animal allergies, severe food and drug allergies, skin conditions like eczema, asthma, and immune mediated conditions that can make you prone to infections. An allergist/immunologist is an expert in identifying the causes of your symptoms and creating effective management strategies.

Allergy testing isn’t necessary for everyone, but it may be recommended based on your medical history. Allergy tests can include skin prick tests using various allergens or blood work. In some cases, especially for specific food and drug allergies, oral challenges, where a small, measured amount of a suspected allergen is given under medical supervision, may be required.

To see an allergist and immunologist, you need a referral from your family doctor or nurse practitioner. Other physicians, like walk-in doctors, may refer you to a clinical immunologist if appropriate. Before your appointment, make a record of your symptoms, inform your healthcare provider about medications, and follow any fasting or dietary restrictions if required. Wear appropriate clothing for testing and prepare a list of questions or concerns to discuss during your appointment.
