Primary Care Physician/Internist
If you’re experiencing symptoms that you think could be
caused by an allergy, see your regular doctor or visit your local clinic for a
consultation. Your doctor will be able to recommend or prescribe any needed
treatments or medications.
In some cases, your
initial medical visit may result in a recommendation to see a specialist such
as an allergist or immunologist, especially if your regular doctor believes you
should have a skin prick or other allergy test performed. An allergist is a
pediatrician or internist with at least two additional years of specialized
training in diagnosing and treating allergies.
