What is an allergist?

An allergy specialist is a physician who after completing medical school continues training in either internal medicine or pediatrics. This training is followed by 2 to 3 year fellowship in the specialty of Adult and Pediatric Asthma Allergy and Clinical Immunology. After meeting these strict requirements, the physician then must pass the national boards in the specialty of asthma allergy and immunology. Only after passing this test can a physician become Board Certified in the Specialty of Adult and Pediatric Asthma Allergy and Immunology.

What are allergic reactions?

Allergic reactions are the mobilization of the immune system against what it considers outside invaders. Unfortunately at times, the body recognizes typically harmless substances such as dust mites, animals, pollens or molds as posing a threat to the body. The immune system then identifies these substances and mounts an attack releasing chemicals such as histamine that causes inflammation and symptoms, which range from hay fever to life-threatening anaphylaxis.

Allergic triggers

An allergic reaction is caused by a trigger known as allergen. Allergens are typically ordinary substances that we come in contact with on a regular basis. Allergens include dust mites, roaches, molds, pets, pollens and insects. We may also develop allergic reactions to foods, insect stings, medicines and any other substances which the body recognizes as foreign.

Who develops asthma or allergies?

Anyone can develop asthma or allergies at any time of life, symptoms can occur for the first time at any age. Genetically there is a predisposition to develop allergic disorders if other family members also suffer from this condition.

Types of allergy problems

An allergic reaction may occur anywhere in the body but usually appears in the respiratory system–nose, lungs; gastrointestinal system; sinuses; eyes and skin. Allergic Rhinitis also known as hay fever, is often mistaken for a common cold.

Allergic rhinitis is an allergic reaction affecting the nose and eyes; producing symptoms such as congestion, sneezing, itching, runny nose and itchy watery eyes.

Do you have asthma?

Asthma is medically defined as airway obstruction that can be reversed with medications. Most people associate asthma with wheezing, severe shortness of breath and constant utilization of inhalers. The vast majority of patients never suffer from severe asthma on a constant basis but may have periodic attacks. Asthma symptoms may consist of cough when exercising, when laughing or when exposed to certain substances, shortness of breath, wheezing, inability to catch a full breath or becoming winded easily. Symptoms can range from extremely mild to life-threatening.

  • The number of people with asthma continues to increase with about 1 out of every 12 persons in the United States suffering from asthma, or about 25-30,000,000 people.
  • Asthma affects children more commonly than adults, but asthma is found in all age groups.
  • Asthma is very often misdiagnosed and treated as upper respiratory tract infections or recurrent “colds”.

What causes asthma symptoms?

One of the main causes of asthma is exposure to substances that cause allergies. These include indoor and outdoor substances including dust mites, cats, insects, pollens, molds, foods. Asthma can also be caused by exposure to chemicals or other substances that cause irritation of the airways as well as infections, strong smells or exercise.
Diagnosing asthma may be difficult at times. Your Asthma and Allergy specialist will take a detailed eye exam, perform a physical examination and use additional tools to make this diagnosis. Pulmonary Function Testing and allergy testing are the major tools used to assess and diagnose asthma.

Skin Allergies

Skin allergies include hives, atopic dermatitis or eczema and contact dermatitis. The cause of these skin allergies may be anything from foods: animals, medicines, chemicals, insect stings to anxiety.

Anaphylaxis

Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic reaction that can be life-threatening. Triggers are typically foods, insect stings or medications. Symptoms may include:

  • Vomiting or diarrhea
  • Drop in blood pressure
  • Urticaria or hives
  • Shortness of breath and difficulty breathing
  • Throat and tongue swelling
  • Passing out.

When and why to seek an allergist

Reasons to see an allergist might include:

– Need for Allergy testing. To Identify the cause of your allergy problems.
– Need for medications to treat and control asthma and allergies.
– Need for desensitization, this would consist of allergy immunotherapy also known as allergy shots.

See an allergist if:

– Your allergies are causing symptoms such as recurrent colds, chronic recurrent sinus infections, persistent nasal symptoms.
– Over-the-counter medications are no longer controlling your allergies symptoms.
– Your asthma or allergies are interfering with your daily activities, and quality of life for example, disturbed sleep patterns, fatigue, inability to exercise, etc.
