An allergist-immunologist is trained in diagnosing and managing disorders involving the immune system. The scope of illnesses treated is quite large and growing.
It may include asthma; anaphylaxis (a severe allergic reaction to food, insect stings, medicine or other items); rhinitis (also known as “allergies” or “hay fever”); eczema; other, less severe reactions to drugs, foods, and insect stings; immune system diseases (such as rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis); and problems related to these immune system diseases, organ transplantation or cancers of the immune system.
Allergists-Immunologists can track down which substance or allergen is causing the problem, advise about how to eliminate the cause, and start a treatment plan. As our understanding of the immune system develops, the scope of this specialty is widening.
