Do you sneeze a lot, get hives or have problems breathing? If you do, you may have allergies. Allergy services are provided by allergists, who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of asthma and allergies. Allergies are heightened sensitivity to a foreign substance or allergen such as food, dust or pollen.
Allergies can often trigger breathing problems such as asthma. If you or someone you care for is having problems with allergies or asthma, an allergist can identify factors that trigger asthma and allergies in addition to prescribing treatment and prevention. Allergists treat people of all age groups including infants and children.
