What are the signs and symptoms of a person who may see these specialists?
Because allergic reactions can have such a vast range of causes, severities, and presentations, it can sometimes be difficult to differentiate an allergy from some other sort of condition. With that in mind, individuals experiencing regular symptoms, such as congestion or sneezing, may benefit from seeing an allergist or immunologist.
How to schedule an appointment with an allergy and immunology specialist?
In most cases, a referral from a primary care provider (PCP) is needed in order to schedule an appointment with these specialists.
During the appointment with the PCP, discuss symptoms and the possibility that allergies might be the cause.
During the appointment with the specialist, tests may be performed to identify the potential presence of an allergy, as well as to identify the best course of action. These tests may include skin tests, blood tests, and lung function tests, among others.
