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 the substance or allergen that is causing the problem, advise about how to eliminate the cause, and start a treatment plan. The scope of this specialty is widening as our understanding of the immune system continues to develop.
