Allergists (also called immunologists) are medical doctors who
specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of immune system diseases. They treat
people who have conditions such as asthma, eczema, and allergic reactions to food,
medicines, insect stings, or environmental agents such as pollen.
Allergists may specialize in treating certain types of conditions,
such as food allergies, or they may specialize in treating people in certain
age groups, such as pediatric allergists, who treat children. As more is
understood about immune system disorders, allergists treat a broader range of
conditions caused by immune system problems.
Allergists can be board-certified by the Board of Allergy and
Immunology, which is recognized by the American Board of Medical
