About Allergist Specialists
An allergist specialist, also called an immunologist, diagnoses and treats allergies, asthma and other problems. These occur when the body’s immune system does not react properly after being exposed to allergy-causing substances such as dust, pollen, mold,feathers and pet dander. Allergies are more common in childhood but occur in adults also. An allergist can treat both children and adults.
